Post: 2011 RAV4 6 Battery drain from key!

Okay...even my local Toyota dealer is stumped. I have a 2.5 year old Toyota battery in my 2011 Rav4...now here's the thing that is perplexing everyone: My Rav4 starts fine, the battery tests positive, and everything is good UNTIL I am at, say, McDonalds and shut my car off (15 minutes). The key is not in the ignition the engine is off. The key is just sitting on the seat. When I go to start the car, it's dead (click, click, click). In the past month I've learned to toss my keys out of the car while I eat or answer phone calls, etc. [/B][/B][/B]I pick the keys back up from outside the car...and my car starts. If I get neglectful, and leave my keys on the seat, my car is dead. Dead. Dead. Click. Nothing is "on" in the car. This has been going on for a couple of months and I am absolutely sure that not one interior light, etc., is on. Have you ever heard of this phenomenon? I've searched everywhere and read about parasite drains, but none of them mention this strange problem.
