stalling/electrical problems?

I'm driving a 96 Dodge Neon that recently has developed electrical problems. At first I thought the alternator was going bad because I still had power to interior lights but the car had trouble turning over and then finally wouldn't start unless you jumped it. I took it to the garage and they replaced the battery and told me that the alternator tested out fine.
The car ran fine for a few days, but now it will stall when at stoplight (it's also gotten colder the past couple of days). The car seems to be idling slower that normally, but when I have the headlights on at a stoplight I can see the intesity of the lights dim as well. Once the car stalls out it starts up again no problem. Any thoughts?

Check for any trouble codes stored in the computer (you need to rent a scanner from Autozone to do this) . Check the alternator output with a digital meter.

Check my post "The Basics" for some ideas and the links in my signature file below.
