Check the boot light is going out when you lock the car - also have a look at the glove-box bulb if fitted. There could also be a drain of somewhere due to a duff connections or component. It may do no harm to get a second opinion on the battery condition and alternator output. Foe a decent test the battery needs to be load tested. Many battery suppliers do theses checks free of charge in the hope of gaining a sale. If both are proved to be OK - you may need to get it looked at by a auto-spark
