led rope lights glow dim when switched off

So here is my issue with led's glowing when switched off.
I have 2 strings of led lights on my patio wired to a switch/outlet combo. This is controlled by an interior switch that controls my exterior door light. So I can either just have the door light on or switch on the led's @ the combo box. All works well. However, I just recently tapped into the end of the strings with a 16/3 exterior cord, cut off the female end and hardwired it into another switch/outlet to control some led rope lights in a screen porch. When the rope lights are switched off, they continue to glow very dim - visible only after dark. Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks!
