Is your alternator charging the battery correctly? How old is your battery? Is there an intermittant fault with the starter motor?
A battery doesn't take kindly to being deep discharged and rarely recovers from this. Also if there is an intermittant problem with the alternator this would cause your battery to lose charge over a few days ( depending on usage). Whilst it may not be going totally flat it may be flat enough not to disarm immobilser cctc, crank starter motor etc.
