1995 Geo Metro 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 88000 miles

When I get a jump my car starts right up and runs til I shut it off. If I turn it off and try to start it 20-30 mins later it doesn't start and it seems like the battery is dead. Is it my alternator??

I would suspect a dead / weak battery. The vehicle doesn't use the alternator UNTIL it is already started. The vehicle uses the battery to crank over and start.
