This could definitely be an ignition switch issue. When it occurs, trying wiggling the ignition vigorously and see if it comes back to life. It may or may not, if it's the switch, but if it does, you'll know it's the switch.

Ignition switch failure is fairly common, too, I'd definitely be starting in the same place.

Good luck with it, let me know if you need anything else!
