2.5 petrol manual 1999, parked on a drive with a slope facing downhill, not even turning over, just beeping even with clutch in and key fob pressed, all clicks as normal just dead yet lots of battery powere for lights and stuff.

Have you tried to jump or bump start it? Just because your battery has enough power to run the lights, radio, etc. does not mean that it has enough to turn over the starter.
