No Boost???

I drove my '04 to the store yesterday, and everything was fine. But when I came out & started it up & took off down the road, the truck had no power. It was turnig plenty of rpm's but when I looked at my Edge attitude gauge display, the truck was not making any boost??????
I took the truck home and let it sit for about 4 hours, then I went out and took it for a drive, and everything was fine??
Just got the truck about one month ago and this is the first time I have had this problem.
Anyone ever experience this????
Thanks,
J

The vanes stuck. There is a reflash that cycles the vanes when the key is turned to the ON position. Keith

This just happened again!
I stopped, shut the truck off and restarted, and it was ok.

Is this a sign of bigger problems to come in the near future???

I would think that even if the vanes stuck it would still build SOME boost, just may take awhile to wind it up and sppol the turbo, just my 2 cents

So is there anything I can do to make this go away....and stay gone???
Should the turbo be replaced? It's under warranty.

Thanks again,
