Unhappy SL500 Stalls out at Idle HELP HELP HELP!

I have a 1999 SL500. Recently, I have had issues with it stalling out at idle. When I try to restart it the car cranks but refuses to start-- However, it never fails that if I wait about 10-15 minutes, it will start again.
I had the fuel filter replaced-- hoping it was as easy as that-- It wasn't! It appears to be some sort of heat sensor or coil issue because it seems once it "cools" or the engine is off for a given period of time it will restart without hesitation. Wondering if anyone has any ideas...

Diagnostics were run, and the computer showed nothing...

The common problem for that engine M113 is a defective crank sensor.. TESTING for RPM signal when the engine WON'T start is the best course of action.
