Does going from neutral to a gear cause the syncros to work?
If you were coasting at idle with the clutch engaged in neutral, then the transmission should be all synced up (like double clutching does), so in that case no.

15 seconds shouldn't bother the throwout bearing, I was picturing a 5 minute coast down and beyond a big hill holding the clutch the whole way.
