Lost electrical power after trying to start engine

I was about to start my 2000 Saturn V6 sedan the other night when the engine cranked a few times and stopped. Then it would not crank anymore.

The battery acted like it was totally dead. Not even the lights would come on after that initial crank.

From past experience, when the battery is weak, the engine would crank slower or the starter solenoid would just click. But none of that happened.

Checked the battery with voltmeter and I got 12.1 volts. Charging up the battery tonight.

Any ideas where my problem might exist? Is there a main fuse that can disconnect the battery to the rest of the electrical system?
