My Lawn Boy

alright well I've got a Lawn Boy (about 4 years old) 2 stroke engine and all that... It starts great on the first time but as soon as I turn it off (about 5 minutes after the first start) it won't start again. I'm not sure what's wrong with it so any help would be gladly accepted

Start with

Check the gas cap for venting, check for spark after it dies and won't start again.

Model and serial number would be helpful. I would suggest checking the compliance cable and make sure it's disengaging the kill switch completely. As suggested above check for spark when it does not want to start. Lawnboy engines are notorious for CDI failures.
