I'm very sorry to have missed this follow up question.
Of course a lot of time has gone by and by now you've gotten your answer, but just in case,

NO, there is no difference. When in sleep/stand by, the computer is not actively connected to the internet thus preventing continued access by any mal/rogue-ware.

Again, thanks for your confidence in my answer(s), and I hope you are having a continued safe computing experience!

Cheers, Webserf
