Question Led headlight confusing computer?

I installed 15 watt LED fog lights from iJDMtoy, very nice. I had professionally installed a set of HID driving lights with dash switch to activate them when the high beams were selected. Just now I installed a set of Phillips LED headlight bulbs, kit from iJDMtoy. The light quality on both low and high beam positions is much better, I love them but now when I have high beams selected and hit the dash switch for the driving lights, they do not light up at all and INSTEAD the FOG LIGHTS come on. There is something on the iJDMtoy site about draw of LED's being so much less than halogens that they fool the computer into thinking lights are out. Can anyone "shed any light" on this? I like the LED's so much, for now I'm just doing without the HID driving lights. I'd sure like to have both...
