Default car stalled

'07 cruiser with 45k miles stalled on me yesterday as I was pulling into a parking space and lost power steering. All the lights and radio where on so I know it's not the battery. tank was full, but it had been raining very hard all morning. When I went to start her up again, I had no problem. Does anybody know if this was a one time thing or something more serious? Any help is great.

Engine light on?
You have A/C or defrost on? engine was probably at idel & load of power steering when you turned to park caused engine to die.
I wouldn't worry unless it happens again.
If it does, clean your Idle Air Controller - behind the throttle body - do a search on IAC and there's a picture Crewzin posted of it.
