i wish people would split their text a bit,easier on my old eyes

get a multimeter and check the battery volts engine off with no electrics on
if it fluctuates then you can see a drain

From the info you gave above, leaving your stereo on for 4 hours would be enough to drain your battery on its own. So unless your battery keeps going flat (even when the stereo is off) then i wouldnt worry!

well on the door panels the little box which controls the windows and mirrors on drivers side the little direction arrows are lit up with no ignition on so any ideas on that and i didnt realise leaving stereo on would flatten batt thought over night yes but 4 hrs no so if door arrows are lit then i have constant live

I see. Leaving your stereo on for 4 hrs could flatten your battery depending on what head unit your running, other sound sytem attached to it, and the condition of your battery. But that lights on in the switch pannel also isnt right. You mention you got an alarm system...is it a full closure system? (ie if you leave your windows open and then lock the car, it closes the windows for you)

do the electric windows not have a capacitor on puntos?eg they work until the drivers door is opened and the capacitor is discharged?
