Do you turn OFF your engine during the "coasting" segment of "Pulse & Glide"?

Another moronic, stupid habit. Without the engine running, you have no power steering, or power brakes.

I don't do the coasting, but if I am at the drive through or teller I shut the engine off.

Dumb idea. Modern car computers shut off fuel to the engine during coasting while maintaining power options with momentum.
