I too have this irritation of the backlight staying on, but it doesnt drain the car.
Have you per chance got an aftermarket stereo in the car?
If yes, apparently Ford believe that this could be the issue (others have been advised this)
Otherwise, you need to pay ford a diagnostics / upgrade fee to update the ECU as apparently there was a fix released to resolve this, although my local dealer dont recognise it as a known fault.

Just waiting for some comments to come back on a "leakage detector" another forum member bought, hopefully if they point out it was a worthwhile investment or not, might be that you find it useful?

Sounds like a fault though, if its not behaving the same all the time, it sounds like the ECU is doing something to tell it to shut off one day, but then something is interfering and preventing it shutting off other days...
Have you tried the dash trick to see if there are any error codes... I am suspicious of a general ECU fault...
