Vauxhall Astra engine management and alternator lights

2002 Vauxhall Astra Problem

The Problem:

The alternator and engine management lights come on now and again. When on, the rev counter drops to zero and the car slows down. After a while the lights go out and all is well again.If I stop and try the pedel down trick, there is no information, also my local garage put their diagnostic machine on it and got no information. Any ideas please.
