[erlang-questions] Windows 10 Fast Startup compatibility with Erlang

Hi Wes,

This worked for me, I found the solution rather quickly when I discovered
that Win 10 service processes are put into sleep mode instead of being
stopped and started again.
My intention was to help others running Erlang on Win 10 machines, Fast
Startup is clearly not easy to spot as a cause. It took me a lot of time to
discover this issue. Moreover I couldn't find anything interesting on web
related to this. To help others:
- somebody could provide a fix for such cases, is it possible?
- there could be some web page on Erlang main page which explicitly
describe "Erlang Windows 10 quirks", is it possible?
