Question dash illumination powering up while parked??

I've had my truck about a month and love it...no probs at all so far.....but here lately i have noticed on a couple of occasions when i go into the garage for a cold beer, i will hear a high pitch and notice the dash gauges are illuminated? This is after it has been parked in the garage for a few hours... Nothing else is lit up, and the interior lights arent on eihter....just the gauge backlights.. they stay on for a bit then shut down?? Only thing i could think of was maybe it was something to do with me leaving the key in the ignition??? either way, what the heck is it doing??
