You must be crazy as that isn't gonna save hardly anything but cause safety problems and maybe transmission problems in the future.

Power brakes, power windows, power steering and cut off the key? Only a fool would do it.

No. Stupid practice. In modern cars ECM shuts off fuel to injectors when coasting in gear.
