I have manual locks (hence, no fob), but I, too, leave my light switch on sometimes. The headlights go off immediately upon turning the key off, but the parking lights stay on until the key is removed.
I have never turned my lights off . . . . so far a year in and no problem. The LX has many wonders. I personally love that. As they go off when I leave the car I never have to remember to turn them on in inclimate weather etc or turn them off if I leave for work in the dark and arrive in the light.
also at night if you need more light after the car shuts its headlights off automatically @ 30seconds, then just hit unlock again and it'll give you another 30sec. Then lock it again when done. Although at least on Oz-spec models, the car re-locks itself if you don't open the handle after unlocking it in 30 sec or a minute or something.
