It sounds like your bulbs are wearing out. The fact that they come on makes sense. When HID's start to go bad they come on and after they heat up they shut of because they need more voltage.

It's easy enough to to check, turn your lights on and let them go off, wait a few minutes for the gas to cool and then if they come back on you know it's the bulb.
