Default Random Loss of Power

Hello All, New to the forum. Thanks in advance to those that help the rest of us. I have a 2002 Vue that is having a mysterious problem. Starts and drives fine. Twice now it has suddenly stopped responding to the gas pedal. Driving along with no issue, then nothing from the pedal. Put it to the floor, no response. Pulled over, turned it off, waited awhile. Fired it back up and drove like nothing ever happened. Quite bizarre. Almost like something is going out on us, but not quite yet.

Code check throws P1779, P1780, and P0700.
PS - Second time showed a light come on saying "Reduced Power"

Anyone ever heard of such a thing?

Thanks from a newbie,
