Obviously a drain on the battery when the car is off, but lucky for you it's giving you a big clue where the problem is (window regulator or switch). I suspect if you fix that your battery drain will go away.

The module that controls airbag deployment also controls the seat belt restraints is located in the canter of the passenger compartment, usually between the front seats and under the center console (if you have one). It may be located under the carpet/mat as well. I can only suggest you visually inspect all the underhood/front end wire connecters and wiring, to look for damaged or fraying, Use a digital volt meter to check for voltage at window switch, which will mean removing the interior door panel. If you have voltage there check for it at the regulator.
