Car Sleeping too deeply

My car seems to sleep deeper than I expect. If I leave it for an hour, the seat adjuster light turns off, but it illuminates when I open the door. If I leave the car for four hours or so, it shuts down completely and doesn't wake up when I return. The comfort access doesn't work (it won't unlock when I lift the handle) and, if it was already unlocked, the soft-close doors don't work. It's dead to the world until I wake it up with the remote or start it up.

I replaced and registered the battery because the one it came with wasn't an AGM, but that hasn't helped. Does this sound like a current drain problem, is it something else, or is this the way it's supposed to work?

Power Drain... mine does the same thing, can't seem to figure it out.

I had a similar issue on my 03, turned out to be the PCM (power control module).

Mine does this too if it sits overnight, is this not normal? Could this be a faulty Logic 7 or ASK? As those are things I am having issues with.
