Sounds almost exactly like a standard intake system leak. Only thing
that I find strange is that it halfway repaired itself that one time.
Look around the intake system for leaks and/or pressure test it for real.

I was driving on the freeway the other morning passing a car in 5th gear - the car started to boost like normal but then when i was parallel with the car my boost cut out completely and i was stuck with no power. Startled, I got to my destination and turned the car off. When I got back in a number of hours later, the car boosted just fine again, for about a pull, but then the turbo would spool no longer.
