Cooling down EPSON 5400 / 5600 / 5650

I’m using a EPSON EH-TW5650. When I shut off the beamer, the fan stops immediately. Is this normal? With my previous beamers I was used to a cooling-down period in which the fan kept running. And also according to the manual there is a cooling-down period in which the operation indicator flashes.
Is there anybody who has an EPSON 5400 / 5600 / 5650 and what are your experiences on this?

I think this is the same projector as the US version 2150. There are several hundred posts in that thread and you may get better results asking other owners directly in that thread...

Projector models with Epson's Instant Off technology do not require a cool-down period, so the fan shuts off immediately when the projector is turned off. This is convenient when traveling with a business projector as it allows you to pack up the projector immediately after making a presentation. It was carried over from Epson's business projectors to some home video models. In Epson's technical specs for the EH-TW5650 it does not say Instant Off but does say the cool-down period is "under 5 seconds." The EH-TW650 specs do say Instant Off.

Thanks!
The Instant Off technology isn't mentioned in the Euopean manual of the TW5650.
Now I found the 2150 Manual as well and that's very much clearer on this.

Yes, it's odd that the Instant Off feature is mentioned in the 2150 specs but not the TW5650 specs.

I have noticed this cooling on Benq pjs(DLP), but the Epson ones(LCD), seem like they stop instantly.I'm wondering this myself. I have a 3020 and a 5040 at the moment.
