Check the crank shaft sensor. It or another sensor may be heating up, failing, then when it cools down letting the car start then starting the cycle again, until it eventually fails completely. You could also or have your mechanic hook it up to his handheld diagnostic computer and take it for a ride until the sensor in question fails.

I changed the crank sensor in my Saab and it still would not start after being driven short distances. It was the neutral safety switch, I changed that and it has not happened again :-)
