Are you leaving the key in the ignition? Just putting the key in the ignition (even without turning it on) seems to wake up the anti-theft system and it apparently starts polling the chip in the key. This puts a load of about 3/4 amp on the battery. Although this is a small load, over time it is more than enough to run the battery down in a 3-4 day period. Its possible that the contact that senses when the key has been inserted occasionally sticks thus leading to a dead battery.
