My car loses power completely after driving on the interstate for 30ish minutes. Alternator is fine, battery is fine, not running hot. Any ideas?

We stopped for 10 min. It cranked and ran fine for another 30 min and it did it again.
Towed it to mechanic who has driven it around town and everything is fine.
