Ethernet / Security

I recently fitted an ethernet card and modem, my question is when I log off as far as I can tell the computer turns my firewall (ZA Free)and AV off but I am still connected. Does this pose a security threat.I understand that being connected all the time creates a situation using only one address but is the firewall still active when logged off.
