You could start by just making sure all your door pins, switches, work properly.
Sometimes they dont know if you opened you door or not leaving the power on to the switches.

I have also noticed that the power to the windows seems to be 'on' all the time - is that just a relay as well?   Cost? The other thing I've noticed is that the alarm (stock) doesn't always come on (sound horn) when I lock the doors - don't know if they are related or not . .
