A switch is wired using the hot wires only, the black wire. It is simply a break in the line so that when the switch is off no power flows and when the switch is on the power does flow.
You are correct that the middle outlet would have two black wires and two white wires.
If you want to tap into that middle outlet and run power up the wall I suggest you look into some wiremold products. Go to their website, or any home depot and check it out. Get back if you think I can help you further. I am an electrician.

This is a single pole light switch and should be wired as any other SP switch. The only difference is that is has a pilot light. All the white neutral wires are tied together and then pushed back in the box with none connected to the switch. The grounds are tied together with a jumper wire connected to the green screw on the switch. That will leave you with 2 or more black wires. If you have just two normally you can connect them to the two screws on the switch and it does not matter which screws. However it may be that with the pilot light you need to connect the wire going to the light to the top screw and the power wire to the bottom or vice versa. Try both ways. If you have more than 2 black wires you need to connect the incoming power black wire and outgoing power black wires together and then jump to one of the screws on the switch. The black wire left over is the black wire going to the light itself. If none of this works then it is obvious the pilot light in the switch is burnt out.

Testimonial: "Thanks a million. I will recheck the wiring tomorrow. Chas"
For this combo , the white wires connect to the two silver screws on one side of the combo .The black power wire connects to the screw next to the switch. IF you want to have the receptacle hot all the time then jumper the hot black from the switch screw to the receptacle screw. The screw in the center is for the black wire from any lihghts that you want to control. IF it is the receptacle that you wish to control with this switch .. then the power connects to the screw next to the switch and the center screw jump a wire to the screw next to the receptacle

Sounds as if you have a bad illuminated switch. The little LED or light inside the switch is itself possibly bad. Return it to the store and get a different one.
