Idle Hubs and a sudden traffic surge from Google


I have had a few of my sites go "idle". I am looking at them and deciding how to freshen them up and noticed something quite strange with one. This site which doesn't get many views, has had a 300% increase over the last week when compared to the previous three. I looked the site up in Google Analytics and most hits were from Google. My question is three fold 1. Has anyone seen a similar spike in views of an idle site from Google? 2. How long does it take for idle sites to drop from search engines? 3. Will be site be dropped from idle status automatically due to increased traffic?
