Would a windmilling engine at cruise (i.e. shut down) still produce some degree of hydraulic pressure and electrical generation? What sort of speed would the engine be rotating at compared to idle? Or does a complete shutdown isolate everything? Just trying to understand what is to be gained by leaving a sick engine running at idle for hours. Apologies if it's a daft question...
