The 12V battery in the Insight can be extremely weak and you would never know it since no real load is ever presented to it, at least compared to a car that starts with the 12V starter.

It's probably just a coincidence that it died. Could be from something as simple as sitting with the ignition on for a few minutes after you got home.

On a slightly related topic - if the 12v battery is so weak, should one never use the accessory power for a long time (for example - sitting in your car listening to the radio for 15 minutes with the engine off)?
It will most likely be fine, but if you have a weak battery it could do it in. Best way is to monitor your 12V voltage.
