Nope, unless you have it in 'Instant-On' mode, it won't download anything when it's off.

Yep, if your Xbox One is set to 'Instant-On' mode in the power settings, it can download games while off!

As long as your Xbox One is in 'Instant-On' mode, it'll download games and updates even when it looks like it's off. Just make sure your power settings are configured right.
