Also use my lights around ports dark or not, I like to feel people can see me coming!
I never forget to turn them on when leaving but sometimes forget on approach (my take-off blindspot, is not always waiting for the engine sound to spool up, before hitting the up thruster). Lights also go on when I have my cargo scoop open, either mining or collecting cargo/mats in space. Would be nice to have a little dot indicator in the HUD somewhere; When you're aware of whether they're on or off at a given time, lights are good for lots of things, not just 'for dark places'.
Happy to hear I'm not the only one with a 'lights protocol' of my own !
