If your battery is not fully charged, the starter takes all power away to turn the starter. If the battery does not have enough charge to turn the starter, this is what appears to happen. Next time that happens, do a jump start and see if it will then start. Have the battery tested for a dead core, that will not hold charge. If this is a six year old battery, it very well could be the problem. While you're checking the battery, also look at the charging system to make sure you have the desired amount of charge going to the battery. Let us know if you find the answer. A lot of people, not only GM shares but others as well have the same issues. Perhaps batteries are not what we think them to be. It used to be a three year old battery still working was an exception. Now some last 5 to 8 years..
