DaBig - Sounds like you have a ground problem or a short.
Batteries do not recover their charge in 5 minutes if they have been completely drained.
Check that the grounding locations on your engine block and chassis are clean and making good contact to steel/ no rust allowed. Check the battery for parasitic load with a volt meter, sometimes a stuck glovebox or trunk light can drain a battery overnight. Check the alternator for output.
