Are you using a broadband connection?
If yes, then you are always "connected" to the Internet. "Connected"
in this sense just means your PC and your ISP's computer are in
contact with one another and with send signals back and forth on a
regular basis to in effect keep the connect up. This takes up very
little bandwidth and is nothing to be worried about.
