Looks like you have a drain on your battery from one of the components in your car. It means that when your car is in "sleep" mode the battery is being drained by lights, or the radio, or something else. It could also be that the you need to change the wires that attach to the battery terminal. Bad wires could drain the battery of all of its power.

The only draw on the battery should only be the computer. You have a short.
