It could be the TFI (thick film ignition) ignition module on the distributor. When it restarts warm, but dies right away, it has a cranking circuit to initially fire the engine. After that, it switches to run mode, which may be be the problem circuit. Often times, when you take the cover off a bad module, it will have a bubble in the jell where the open circuit has heated up. Heat is the enemy of all electrical components and when they get warm is when the problems show up. This is my first guess. If you have access to a fuel pressure gauge, you can hook it to the pressure tap on the fuel rail and watch for a drop in pressure. It needs around 40 psi to run. Even a clogged fuel filter causing low pressure and flow can shut you down, but it shouldn't run good cold in that case either since fuel demand is higher on cold start. I hope this points you in the right direction. If not, I'd be glad to continue assisting your diagnosis.

Fuel system..Filter or pump..maybe clogged
Try fuel line cleaner..make sure the tank is 3/4 full.
this may help.

This is a very common problem with the Saturn. It's a bad ignition switch. You need to replace it.
Google on common saturn problems and you'll see that hundred of Saturn owners have had this very problem.
It's really amusing how each dealer prances around it and doesn't tell their customers that it's a common problem. If you bring it to them they will know right away what the problem is but they may pretend not to know right away...EVERY Saturn dealer has fixed this on dozens and dozens of their vehicles...

FUEL PRESSURE MUST BE 62 LBS. OR GREATER OR IT WILL NOT GROUND INJECTORS, IF ITS OK THEN CHECK YOUR GRAY 12V SUPPLY TO PUMP AT CRANK-UP, YOU MAY HAVE A POOR IGNITION SWITCH.
