Not likely.
the leds at 1 most likely draw less than the self-discharge rate of the battery.

Try the math - its a 1500MaH battery -
The leds at "1" will not pull more that 1ma -
Now divide 1500 by the hours in 8 weeks -
minus 1 (or 2 if parniod) -
Now multiple the result back into weeks -

I.E: Not worth the trouble of doing the math. Try it yourself.
