How I can speed up booting time and loading userspace on Manjaro KDE

I have a Manjaro Kde Plasma 5.21.3 installed dual boot with windows 10
I would like to use manjaro as my primary system but while I working on it and after installing some Tools(VS Code Gimp FreeOffice Composer MySQL PHP apache…) I have now a slow booting time
the first time, I measure the boot time:

  • ~ 1:45 for manjaro
  • ~ 0:50 ~ 1:00 for windows 10(a lot of software installed on it)

now the booting time up to 2:30 for manjaro

Please how I can improve the boot time I am new in manjaro but I love using Linux & I want to make the system performance better for development and blogging.

Hi, do you use snaps? Because it really slows down boot time.

If not you can disable snap service with sudo systemctl disable snapd.service and sudo systemctl disable snapd.apparmor.service

But if you won’t ever use snaps, you can uninstall snapd and pamac-snap-plugin packages.

There, you should have an enhanced boot time after reboot.

Thanks, now I disable them.
I have tried using hibernate & it makes the booting time faster.
but with some problems (I am trying to fix them at this moment).
