Newbie: Need minimal windows 10 for POS

We are a POS (Point of Sale) startup using Windows 10 and JavaFX. We have a problem when coming out of standby on handhelds (4gb ram).

When coming out of standby, the startup is slow (10 seconds or so).. We need the handheld devices be usable as soon as possible. As a newbie in the world of IOT/LTSC etc. I understand it is possible to have a version of windows that is minimalist, while still supporting JavaFX (just a gui toolkit), touch (tap, drag and right click context menu). We want to disable / remove any process, which can decrease the startup time.

I would appreciate any pointers.

In previous version of Windows Embedded, the operating system was componentized to reduce the footprint and remove unwanted services. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise is not componentized. The only thing you can do is to disable services and scheduled tasks individually. The time to come out of standby is more dictated by hardware and optimized device drivers than services.

The article "Modern Standby resume performance" can explain the situation a little better.

Hi @AlamgirFarouk-4283,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!
You can use the standby mode feature of the Windows 10 iot now, so you don't need boot every time.
See this official document about change mode: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/device-experiences/powercfg-command-line-options#change-or-x
In addition, this is a feedback site for you: Azure IoT (Hub, DPS, SDKs) · Community
