Sounds like you may have a parasitic voltage drain and tracing such can be difficult. The VVTi engines have a history of faulty dephaser operating solenoids which can cause a drain even though everything else is switched off so it may be worth investigating that aspect first.:)

It could be a faulty alternator but only an electrical test would reveal if it was. Try disconnecting the VVTi solenoid overnight and see if it helps.:)
