Shutting off your engine at stops a la Prius is not a very good move. If the car's motion is solely resting on the motor, shutting it off would have repercussions on instant unplanned acceleration (ie somebody's decided they would rather not have you around anymore ;>)
The engines that shut off when not moving use 48+ volt electrical systems(or at least the trucks that I've read about do). They are designed to start instantly. Those starters must spin pretty damn fast :eek:
