'98 TJ Stalling

Hi guys,
Jeep has recently started stalling. Only stalls at stop signs, red lights, or when stopping behind stopped traffic. Doesn't do it every time I drive, but when it happens it's hard to start. You have to keep it revved up or it dies. It doesn't sputter or anything like that,just dies like you turn the key off.The service engine light does not come on either. Any ideas where to start would help since I'm by no means a mechanic, and its hard to bring it in if it doesn't happen often. Thanks alot for your time.
Todd

Well, I dico'ed the battery for a few minutes and hooked it back up and haven't had the problem again. I guess it reset the electronics? Been working fine so far.

Well, it may return. It sounds like the IAC (I-dle A-ir C-ontroller) to me. They can be removed and cleaned as a start with no money spent.
