is it wired to the permanent live? as it sound like they are not. does the clock work without the keys in?

I'm with Jaysmini - look at the back of the clock if you can. should be 2 different wires going into it (+ 3rd wire to casing).
One wire will be to light the clock -easy to tell, just disconnect them when the (side) lights are turned on & see which makes the light go off.
*Note my 35LE had clock light on all of the time, not sure if it was a factory thing(!?)
The other wire will be the feed, so take a note of the colours on the plastic coating then find the other end that's connected to the fuse box, with the same colours.
Both types of fuse box (old 7 new) should have a permanent & a switched feed, so just find a free connecting terminal if you can & swap over. You may need to fit a piggy back spade connector if there are no free terminals.
Let us know what age / type mini you have if you get stuck.
