I've had this problem on two different cars.<BR>1st one it was the IAC on the intake manifold.<BR>2nd and less pleasant, the engine lost oil pressure at the top of the engine. <BR>The oil guage showed good pressure, but with<BR>valve cover off ther was no oil coming out of the push rods.

If it won't idle but starts right up after dying, a stuck/gummed/failed IAC is a good possibility. If it won't restart even with the pedal held down a bit for several minutes then I would look at the ESC/Coilpack.
