Not sure if I totally understand the question here, but, no it wont sync after shutting down because the computer has been shut down and so is turned off.

It WILL however sync to and from any other devices that are still turned on and connected to the internet

To add to what Mark said, the next time you switch on the machine, assuming that the Dropbox desktop application is set to run on startup, any changes to your files online will sync down to your machine.
