From what I have heard is this...

When a Jedi is ready to die their body will vanish into thin air.  They're giving themself to the Force, to make it an even more powerful entity.  That's why Obi-Wan and Yoda both vanished.  They were ready to die.

When a Jedi is killed in battle unexpectedly their body doesn't disappear.  That's why Qui-Gonn and Darth Vader (even though he really wasn't a Jedi) didn't disappear when they died.  They were not read to die voluntarily on their own, and they were both unexpected deaths.
