Recommended Standby Temperatures for PLA, PETG, TPU?

So I got a Dual Extruder Printer and am setting up IdeaMaker for slicing.

I understand its not a good idea to keep an Idle Extruder at full Printing Temperature as it can char the filament, heat-creep and clog the nozzle, etc.. But I can't find any recommended temperatures for Standby.

I regularly print with PLA, PETG and TPU.

Any suggestions for a good Standby temperature to avoid issues without having to completely reheat the Hot-End?
Or would retraction out of the hot-zone be a better option?

Thanks!
