The RESUME switch is a small capacity momentary contact (meaning it woud have to be continuously pressed to keep the LEDs on) unit designed to switch less than 5 mA--in operations it switches a 5 V reference voltage from the speed control servo to ground, through a 2200 Ω resistor.
A typical low-power color LED draws 20 mA, higher power and white LEDs can require up to 100 mA each, obviously a combination of "some" LEDs will be more than that. The bottom line is that neither the RESUME switch or the conductors in the "clock spring" are up to the job...
