Mini maxx install question

Right now I have my mini just running off obd port. The issue is the mini is always on this way. Is there any negative to running it this way?

My CTS turns off shortly after the key is off, its just plugged into the port too. I would expect the Mini to do that as well. Does it stay on even after you leave the truck and lock the door?

There is a thread on here from a couple weeks back that hits on this topic. I don't own a MM, but apparently there is a wire that needs to be spliced in that will turn this off with the key. I believe that the only downside to not splicing the wire is the possibility of dead batteries, but I could be wrong. Try searching and you will probably find it.

I am 99% sure it is the white with blue line. I will have to look next time I walk out to my truck.
