car wont start---help please. : }

okay I was cleaning out my 2008 Chevy impala yesterday & listening to the radio, cant remember if i had the key in the on position but I had it on for about 20 minutes when the battery saver active light came on in the instrument panel, so I turnrd it off went inside, came back out half hour later then started it, now it didn't really start like it usually does this time it was all lazy or something but it started, so I then went down to my moms, again NOT THINKING, was listening to music again when the battery saver active light flashed on, so i then turned the car in the off position then proceeded to try and start it but nothing so I then try to boost it but all it does is making a clicking sounding when i crank it. the lights are real dim and when i double click the remote to lock it the horn is real faint. This is the first time i've ever had a problem with the battery dying out real quickly. why would it do this and why would boosting it not start it?>

Put a full charge on the battery with a charger for a few hours more if you can. If you have problems after that check your battery.
