Personally I wired the panel LEDs and the instrument lights to a courtesy light circuit. I did this because I have two sets of running lights - one at the masthead (better visibility from afar), and the normal deck-level lights (for under power). Can't use them at the same time of course; so although I could have set something up with diodes to light up the instrument lights, I decided on a separate circuit.
