Question about 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe
I have seen some cars where the door doesn't fully latch and they exhibit the identical symptoms. A not-fully-latched door is subject to uncommanded opening.
Short term fix -- don't lean against the door 'till this is fixed.
Longer term -- there is an adjustment for this, but rather than go through it here I think that the best bet is to take it to a dealer and get them to adjust it. A door that is not fastening well is nothing to play around with.

If this is a rear door, it sounds like the child safety lock switch engaged. There is a switch which prevents little kids from opening the door from the inside. It is located on the inside of the door near the latch when the door is open. Move it to the position opposite of 'engaged' and see if that fixes it.

standard problem; must replace the handle on the inside which entails drilling out rivets, etc. Easier to have a mechanic do it and the cost is around 150$... kind of worth it when you try to do it yourself. Let the problem go longer and the handle, itself, just lies there in a retarded fashion. Basically, the inside of the door latch has a piece of plastic that breaks off. Go figure. Build cheap ****; expect bad results.
This should have been made from a higher density material to offset this problem.

There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.
Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.
Hope this is helpful!!

It sounds like the linkage connecting the door handle to the latch has disengaged....you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can then pull off the weather seal in order to see the inside of the door....
