Air Conditioner question

When starting my car after siting in parking space for about 10 minutes my A/C would not turn on. Turn off everything turned it on and nothing happen. I tried to turn on defroster and still nothing. After riding for 10 + minutes it started and all was well. Went to another store waited 10 minutes, started car and it started rightup. Any sugestions?

Does the AC control panel light up but the fan just does not work? If so then it could be a faulty final stage. Do a search and you will yield plenty of results on this subject.
if the screen stays dark when this happens then it would most likely be something else, possibly a bad control panel. Let us know exactly what its doing.
