I just ordered a Prius (delivery in 6-8 months) so I can't try this myself:

How long will the A/C run off the traction battery alone? i.e. how long can you sit there stopped with the engine off before the engine gets restarted to charge the battery?

Seems like about twenty minutes to me. But of course it depends on how hard the A/C is having to work and the state of your battery when you start the experiment.
