odd thing

My battery died while I was on vacation for 10 days. I was just wondering if that could have been caused by my system taking power while the car is off. Is that possible?

no, because it was in my garage.
I think it might have had the tiniest bit.

ya, everything light wise and anything that would have drained power while the car was off was off.

I am pretty sure it was the alarm that did it. I had an 02 Chrysler 300m that was parked for a week with nothing but factory equipment and it was completely dead after a week. It was so dead it didn't even take a boost, it had to actually be charged up before it would start and that was just the stock one as well.
