|Thema: Do wifi signals allow unauthorized access to my ha|

I live in an apartment building. I only use a physical cable internet connection with no wifi router to my desktop PC. I shut-off power to my router at night but leave the hard drive in sleep mode. If my router is off, my computer shows me a dozen strong wifi connection options from my neighbors that I could choose as my internet connection.
Is it possible for someone else's wifi signal to connect with my computer while in sleep mode and gain access to it? (in other words, should I always shut off the surge protector power to my HD at night)?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
