If I immediately hit the window button again it normally dies, but not every time. When I'm trying to restart it, I don't think I can hear the fuel pump turn on. The last time it happened I noticed the fuel pump running right before it restarted. This is my everyday driver, but this only happens periodically. On average, I'd say once a week.
The first thing to check would be the state of your battery. It may be dropping below voltage when the current is drawn for the power window motor and affecting the computer and ignition.
NExt check the battery connections especially the positive cables if there are two positive cables with one on top of the other. Check for corrosion between them. Also you might check the cable down from the battery for corrosion; you might slice into the plastic to take a look at it.
The next place to check would be the ground bus connection that is at the bottom of the a pillar where the bundle of wires runs under the door sill area. There is a ground bus on both sides of the car.
Before disconnecting the battery turn off all accessories including the AC unit so it cycles off. Some people have had problems with their auto HVAC units after disconnecting batteries for replacement.
