Question Turbo cool-down period?

Are you guys exercising the typical cool-down procedure on your turbo's, even if you haven't driven the car hard?

My understanding is that you should let the engine idle for ~2 minutes after a hard run (e.g: frequent max boost bursts), but if you haven't been driving the car hard at all (i.e: no boost), is it safe to just shut off immediately?

Is this a bad thing?
