Jason, it'* not the IAC, so rule that out now. It'* only busy when the throttle plate is fully closed.

Disconnect the MAF and see if it ever does it again. You'll be in default mode, but it may be hard to rule out with such an inconsistent problem.

As i've said above, i believe it to be the battery cables. I'll definetly check the MAF though if it happens after i replace the cable bolts.

Sorry, I missed the loss of electrical power above. A lack of GO power could very well be the MAF sensor with the throttle depressed, but if you also lost electrical power, I'd say your battery connections are the #1 suspect.

I gotta quit skimming topics.

With as much assistance as you provide everyone here, I suppose we can forgive you for an occasional skimming error, lol.

And Jason, Let us know how it all turns out.
