Either the pats module (theft system) is going bad or the transponder in the key is getting weak. Will need to go to a service center to have the module reprogrammed at the least. If you want to bypass the system tottaly then let me know and I can tell you how to do that.

My 1999 alero was doing the same thing a few years back. I took it to the shop and they told me it had something to do with my ignition (it was several years ago so I can't remember exactly what they said). It was sort of an expensive fix. It hasn't done it since. I hope that helps a little.
