05' Vibe Starts and runs fine, turn off the car, then it wont start back up

The car will start up and drive just fine but as soon as you turn it off, it will not turn back on. If you wait three to four hours it will restart with no problem. This repeats its self daily. When you turn the key the dash lights come on but will not crank at all. I am skeptical that it might be the alarm system;however, there is no key fab and no code for the check engine. It has 170K miles. Laughing, my sweet husband dictated first attempt to describe the problem was long and rambling! Sorry ya'll i do not know anything about cars...besides the fact that i just might have bought a lemon! Good thing i like lemonade! PLEASE HELP!
