Transmission hesitation after sitting?

Last couple of times I have gotten in the truck after it has sat for an extended amount of time I drop it into drive to get out of the garage and it has some delay before it starts to move. Any thoughts on what would be causing this? Is a complete failure in my future? Any help would be great.

Haven't had any leaks so that rely didn't cross my mind. I will have to check. Thanks for the reply. Hope it is just that simple.

Sometimes weeks at a time. Sometimes longer.

Next best guess please. Checked the fluid level a cold start up in P and at idle showed full on the cold section of crosshatch.

What's the fluid level when checked properly?

Week or two isn't enough time for the clutches to dry out. So if the fluids right, you might have a lazy solenoid or pump.

Other than warming it up what proper way are you referring to?

No other transmission gurus out there with any input? Fluid level is fine.
