It sounds like the latch assembly in one of the doors might be getting stuck which is causing the dome lights to come on automatically.

I recommend buying a can of PB blaster and spraying the latches on all of the doors. Open and close each door 10-15 times to ensure the latches are lubricated appropriately. I had a friend with this same problem where his dome lights would come on when the car would sit overnight and consequently drain his battery.
