I heard this is common with LED's sometimes they even flash for awhile after they've been switched off, i've never heard of any staying on for more than 40 mins though.

I think it is because LED's are a lot more sensitive than standard bulbs so they pick up the smallest amount of voltage that wouldn't normally light a standard bulb.

Perhaps your light switch is faulty and is allowing a very low voltage to pass through. You dont need to worry about battery drain as the power from a dimmed LED would be minimal.
