2007 Monte Carlo- key turns, power goes out, it won't start and the ignition locks the key in it. Seems as though the computer resets and then it will allow me to perform the same again.

Actually, the computer wasn't recognizing my key. Disconnected the positive battery connection to reset the computer and it corrected the issue
