Sounds like you have a backlight problem. To verify this, turn on the set and dim the lights in the room. Take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen. If you see a faint picture, you either have a back inverter or a bad backlight bulb.
If you take a good look at the screen when it goes dark can you make out anything maybe some bright scenes on the channel you were watching or if you press the menu key, you can see a very dim display, you might need the back light assembly or something related to it.

After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.
Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.
tbrace, your picture tube is getting a little tired, the "IK circuit" is causing the blanking of the video because the tube is not returning a large enough signal back to the IC that monitors it. Theres only one fix (besides replacing the tube) for your set and that is to turn up the screen control. You have to remove the back from the set and on the right hand side there is a large plastic part called a flyback transformer, with a heavy wire coming out of the top which goes up to the picture tube, mounted on the front of this transformer is 2 black blastic "philips type" controls, one over the other look closely and one will be marked focus(do not turn that one) and the other is the screen control, turn the set on and SLOWLY turn the control clockwise until you see a bright picture with white lines in it, once you see the lines turn it back until they disappear, (check several channels to be sure they are gone) your done, may last 3 weeks, may last a year, it`s all you can do, BMW Rider
