Has you battery ever died on you?

Considering most of the things are automatic in this car, for example auto shut off lights. Have you guys ever left anything on to where it drained your battery and you needed a jump?

I think it would turn off an accessory light by itself at a certain reserve level. Take my answer with a grain of salt though.
Usually people get multiple low-battery warnings that are ignored before they need a jump.

Battery didn't die, IBS shut things off. I was in the car, it was cold, and suddenly the bluetooth dropped. I thought it was my phone. Then it came back. After a few days of doing the same, the battery icon came on and the entire ignition shut off.

I remember a defect in 2010 E92 coupes where the IBS was cutting off the rear defrost and heated wheel for no reason.....

I've managed to do it.

I left my car at the airport for 4 weeks (last winter). Like an idiot, I left the parking lights on. When I returned to the long term parking lot, the car was totally dead. After a jump start, the car was fine. Two years later, no charging or draining issues.
