How does BitTorrent actually work? A hidden agenda?

Okay... I must first mention that I have a MacBook Pro AND a PC still using XP (Vista's a little scary). I know there are separate forums for PC and Mac, but I wanna know for both and it's not like there is a joined one. Perhaps BitTorrent works the same for both... I don't know. I tried reading the Wikipedia information on BT, but my questions weren't exactly answered.
My biggest question is: Does BitTorrent work, even when the program isn't actually on?
Anyone get where I'm going with this? I just want to make sure that it's not being evil and slowing my Internet connection down. I'd appreciate any help.
