I did try google, so apologies if this is very simple.

I transfered some coins to my Bitcoin-QT wallet this morning, now (12 hours later) I open my laptop and there is nothing received. Must I wait for my wallet to sync before they appear?

Thanks

Yeah, syncing means it's downloading the entire blockchain, it'll take some time if you've never done it before but when it's done you'll see your correct balance there, just leave it running a day or two (assuming first time) and it should be done after that.

Thanks. I got scared for a second. I last had it on a couple of days ago, so hopefully won't take too long to sync.

If it's too long for you in future get a lightwieght client like electrum that uses a server that does all the blockchain stuff, electrum is also encrypted and you can restore your wallet from seed.

I was looking for a client that didn't require dowloading gigabytes of crap, haha. Thanks!

Electrum, there is no incentive to run a full node with Bitcoin QT.
I personally  just use QT to help the network however, it does seem to take a lot of space on my ssd.
