dead car

so i left my lights on when i got back from work 3 nights ago. had to worok the next night, noticed the car was dead seeing i left my lights on. i called work and said i'm not coming in, dead car plus it was super slow today anyway with over staffed. didn't bother to jump it then, waited til the next day to jump it before work. hooked it up to the cars, my car starts immediately. i'm pleased, as soon as i take a jumper cable off, car shuts off. i was like wtf??? this can't be happening. did it again a few more times.
anyone know what it could be? my alternator is only 4 months old and never got wet or anything, my battery is about 4 years old. i know the car should have stayed running if the alternator was going...??
and it shouldh ave started to charge the battery but it didn't.

also i noticed my car revv'ed and sounded better from the exhaust when getting jumped....what about that? that confused me.
i have an SVT 2002

Most Excellence!
