Sure. I will create a new JIRA for documenting this behavior.

> I have generated Cordova app and added windows platform to it. I am using Visual Studio
2015 to open the project and app runs just fine. For me it is very important to subscribe
to certain Cordova events. Among others: deviceready, resume and pause. I subscribe to deviceready
like this in index.js:
> document.addEventListener('deviceready', this.onDeviceReady, false);
> And I get this event fired by Cordova and received when running the app on Windows Phone
8.1, Windows Phone (with Windows 10) and Windows 10 (desktop).
> After 'deviceready' event is fired, I am subscribing to 'resume' and 'pause' events.
I tried with single and double quotes (it doesn't look like it should make any difference):
> document.addEventListener('resume', onResume, false);
> document.addEventListener('pause', onPause, false);
> But these events are not getting fired when I bring my app to background/foreground.
I was testing while debugging or if app is built in release mode. No way that I can trigger
any of these methods (onResume or onPause). Only way I saw onPause getting triggered is when
I debug app in Visual Studio and once I hit Stop button (to terminate debugging session),
in that moment onPause gets triggered.
> Is this known bug or "normal" behaviour?
