What makes you think that your battery is drained?

it is possible that the battery or the alternator not charging the battery could cause a problem. Is this something that happens every time you start the car up? If you keep the trans in park does then engine stay running? Is the check engine light on? Is the battery light on? If you raise the RPM's up a little does it still stall when you put it in gear?

let me know what you can find out
