Dear patson

You didn’t elaborate "idle".
1. If asset is idle with the intention to use it in future, then it shall be depreciated and reviewed for impairment (if indications of impairment exist).
2. If it is discontinued then it shall be derecognized from books and any gain or loss shall be recognized accordingly.
3. If it is discontinued and held for sale, then it shall be reviewed for impairment (if indications of impairment exist) but no depreciation shall be charged under this condition.

Hope this serves the purpose.
