Focus on't start, but is fine 9 times out of 10

I have a 2002 Ford Focus LX (Basic Model with roll up windows and cassette). It usually starts just fine, and runs fine. But sometimes, I noticed when I sit in my car for a couple minutes after taking the key out, the car won't start when I try it again. It doesn't make any sound of the engine struggling. Sometimes the battery components come on like lights and air, but no engine sound. Sometimes not even the battery components come on. My mechanic found no problem with the starter, battery grounding, or anything. One friend guessed it was the anti theft system, because I was sitting in my car a few minutes, which would relate to the locks and all. But it happened one time when I had gotten right out of my car, locked the door, and entered again in 1 minute. I am so confused, if anyone can help me, that would be great, thanks. -Jen
