Start charging minutes after simulator/emulator is launched

Currently we run iOS and Android tests on Sauce Labs and for both platforms it takes about 2 minutes before the app actually launches in the simulator/emulator, which eats into our monthly hours allotment. This time should either be reduced or should not be counted as part of our monthly minutes.


Thank you,
