This can be a sign of a failing mass airflow sensor. Next time problem happens unplug the mass airflow sensor to see if it starts easily, if so clean with approved cleaner from parts store. If cleaner doesn't help replace the mass airflow sensor. The only other thing that cause this is security system but that would have security indicator on dash acting up. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
