i know its been a while since you asked for advice on idle/stalling problem, but anyway, i had the same prob. on my laguna 11. the problem is oil /dirt in the throttle body , caused by old oil thinning and when this happens it gets sucked into the throttle body which is apperently very sensative to any kind of dirty contamination. Cure is to remove throttle body and clean, this job will cost about 25 but make sure you have the oil and filter changed as well.
p.s. i also had diagnostics done which showed nothing.
