2000 blazer idles 5-15 min. Shuts off restart in mayb 5 min.

First, why are you allowing engine to idle for such long times? Heat in electronic components can build to excessive levels when idling. Coils, ignition modules, crank and cam sensors all can fail at these times. Once part cools it may function again.
