Default Cruiser no start

OK, after my last round of no charging (got that solved thanks) now its something new. I was running errands on Wednesday and parked the Cruiser, came back out and nothing. No lights, no sound, it was like the battery had been removed. I opened the hood and checked what I could visually, fuses, connections, etc. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary. After about 10 min I called a buddy to come pick me up. After I called him I opened the door to get out and the lights, door chime, etc came on and the car started fine. I drove the car home and turned it off, same thing again, no nothing. After the last headaches I had with no charging, the battery, alternator, computer and battery terminals have been replaced. I double checked all my connections and grounds, they all are tight and clean. I tried to start it again and it fired right up with no problem. I physically removed the battery cable when I had the charging problems and checked it from end to end. So far it had done the same thing to me 4 times now, since Wednesday, Normally after I wait a few minutes it will start up again, it does not seem to matter whether the car is hot or cold and since i have had it happen when I first leave in the morning or after I have driven it for a while. Any ideas on where to start this time?

With everything else being replaced and gone through my guess would be a bad ignition switch.

I could agree with that but why would the ignition switch cause a total electrical death? No dome light, no nothing.
