Intermittent Stalling Engine - Mystery Unsolved

While driving the engine runs just fine and without noises. I can turn it off, start it back up, drive it and then it will stall dead in its tracks at any moment while driving. No hesitation or sputter. It just dies. Then if I try to start it again it won't start immediately. I have to let it set for a minute or two before it immediately starts up again. Then it might run for another 10 minutes or an hour. Doesn't seem to be consistent. Any ideas? Is it electrical, computer, fuel pump or maybe a sensor? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

We need add'l info to say anything constructive. When it does not start, are you able to check and see if there is ignition spark?
