Help with hella optilux wiring

Hey guys need some help! I wired up a set of hella optilux 4inch led lights on the windshield. I followed the diagram exactly and it has me wiring straight to the battery....the lights work fine but the switch has a small light to indicate power. Naturally going straightt to the battery the switch is constantly lit even with the jeep off. Is this a problem? I figured its only pulling miliamps so it wont be a big deal right? It would take a long time of the vehicle sitting to impact the battery right? What do you all think? Should I rewire or put in a different switch that is not lit? Any help is greatly appreciated...

The switch should have another lead which you could then tap power from a switched battery source (so it's only lit when you're driving or better yet, tap the dash lights so it's only lit at night). If it doesn't, just get another switch. No it's not a big deal but I wouldn't want anything still running when you're not in it.
