Loosing electrical power?

Well, here we go again!

What's happening with my car is that once in a while, and recently, more often than I want to admit, my car looses all electrical power. Even the gages drop to zero! I have to recharge the battery to get it going again. I had my mechanic look it over. Unfortunately, his OBD scanner would not let him determine what exactly the fault codes are. He checked the battery to see if it was recharging, and it is. My first gear is slow to engage, especially when I do a quick stop, the car will just rev up till the first speed kicks in (probably due to low voltage?). Any one ever encounter this sort of problem? What a pain in the ***. Any feedback will greatly be appreciated. Thanks. JM>
