Question about 2000 Toyota Camry Solara
No the alternator won't keep it running on a Toyota, the system is wired much different than most cars, found this out the hard way on same type of car. Test the alternator, raise the idle up to 1500 RPM turn on everything in the car, lites on high beam, ac blower on high, everything, voltage at battery should not be less than about 13.5 volts and not more than 14.7 volts, (clean battery cables first) if all that checks out you have a draw in the system, most common source is the glove box lite or trunk lite, on rare occasions a bad isolation diode in the alternator can cause a voltage draw, another test is to pull off the positive battery battery cable at night and lightly touch it to the battery post, if you see any faint spark there is a draw somewhere in the system, these types of issues can be heck to find, but not always, check what I said to. And last but not least clean the battery cables thoroughly, get a battery brush tool from parts store they are cheap, neutralize any acid with a solution of baking soda and warm tap water.
