Sleeping in car dead battery

Ok,

So during a long drive down south, I slept in my car with engine and all utilities ice radio, lights off. When I woke up the car battery was dead. Is this just a coincidence or did my presence in the car for approx 5-6 hours with engine off contribute to this?

Did you have the door unlocked ? Could be something did shut-off fully if it was left open?
Other then that it could just be bizarre chance

Or even just the key left in the ignition would possibly prevent computers from powering down.
