Turbo cooling

I have just bought a 2011 Mercedes C-class Blue Efficiency, with a petrol engine. Do I need to take special care before switching off the engine, because of the turbo?

This has a water cooled turbo and coolant will continue to be pumped through it after you switch off. But still better to run the engine at idle for a minute or two after a long ascent, for example.
