You are correct. IMA battery is charged while the vehicle is in gear (Manual Transmision). I put it into neutral sooner cause my vehicle would give me a horse ride if I left it in gear too long. On page 11 of Owner's Manual it suggest depressing clutch below 19mph.

Oh, after reading your post I correct you did not depress clutch but push gear into neutral? I think that is bad. You could grind your gear not to mention breaking it. I always depress clutch and move to neutral and release clutch so as not to ride the clutch. I have not touch a manual for over 10 years but it is like second nature.
