94 Malibu starting problem

My son has a 95 Malibu automatic v-6 and when you start it and drive and then stop it some times not all the time it will not start back up. The engine turns over just fine and the longer you try to start it the longer it will take to start. On the other hand if you go shopping for a while and then come back to the car it will start right up again. It's got me scratching my head with this problem because I'm not sure where to look for the problem and the engine runs smooth and good.One would think if was in the ignition system I would have a miss or it would be there all the time but now I'm also dealing with a computer so I thought someone out there might have run across this problem before and save me some time on what to look for or just take a stab at what you would do two heads are better then one,,thanks,,Joe

Any ideas? Been so long since I messed with points I do not remember how to test half of this stuff!
Make sure that you have a good engine ground clean and tight!
