What happens if you send money to a wallet on a computer that is not turned on?

Will the coins appear next time you open the computer or are you screwed?

Thanks

It will work fine. The transaction is stored in the block chain on the internet. As soon as you turn on the computer it will start to catch up and download all the blocks since last time.

Imagine sending Bitcoin money to an address like storing them at number coded lockers in the train station. If you know the code to given address (stored in wallet.dat), you will be able to pickup Bitcoins, anytime.

If you lost your passwords (wallet.dat), those Bitcoins will be locked in that address forever.
