Zi8 on button glows when off

I noticed that the power button on the side of the Kodak Zi8 glows when off. Its just a tiny glow, but you can see it in a fully dark room. At first I thought it was side illumination leaking into the case, but not so in a fully darken room. Could this be wasting power as it sits in the "off" position? What the purpose of allowing the led to light? Could I have a leaky transistor lighting up the led?
