SEAT Ibiza starting problem

I own a 2008 SEAT Ibiza. A few weeks ago the car refused to start with a flat battery. The problem has become more and more frequent. Any idea what the fault could be?

Might be the interior light dimmer switch. Switch it off altogether. Then take the car for a run of at least 30 miles or have the battery re-charged.
