As for the windows, does this happen when the engine is on or just after unlocking without starting the car?
Are you sure you have the interior light switch is on the right setting? There are 3 settings, off, constantly on and on when a door is opened or the car is unlocked.
These are simple things I know, but I don't know if you have just recently bought this car and you are not quite familiar with it yet or you've had it for ages and these are definite problems.

in VR's sedans there isn't the option to turn off the interior light,(well my old one there wasn't, thats why the cop ones have the fog light button installed to turn it off) they just go off with the door, you can turn on the interior light with the door shut but not turn it off with the door open, hope that makes sense. Your interior light and power windows will have power when you unlock the car by remote key (most cases) but will only stay powered for a few minutes (enough time to use the windows before you start the car - Holden?)

The interior light should turn off (30 secs?) after you close the door or immediately when you start the car. is it staying on when you start the car with the doors shut? if so i would say a door switch is the problem.

I would say your BCM might be faulty it controls all of the function you mentioned,its a black box under your dash in the fuse panel with two big plugs in it

If you replaced the alternator you proably reset the bcm. to ajust your light options take it to a dealer and tell them what you want your interior light what to do, and they will set it on the Teck 1. It's pretty cheap.
