Default Left key in "on" position overnight...

Stupid mistake...
Been working on my truck in the garage, and have to push it back a couple feet to work on it. Last night when I pushed it back in to close the garage door, I must have thrown it in PARK and then forgot to turn off the key.

Anyway, not surprisingly the battery was toast this morning (but did produce a clicking at the solenoid). I've got the battery recharged, but I can't try to turn the engine over (since I have the thermostat housing removed). Just wondering if I should expect a fried fuel pump or (fingers crossed) does the 4.0 shut down the fuel pump if the key is left in on without the engine running?

If I'm going to need a new pump, I'd hate to wait until Wednesday to find out (that's when the thermostat housing arrives)...
