Castle shield toggle

Can someone help explain the strategy of enabling and disabling the castle shield? I see it being toggled on and off randomly and was just wondering why.

The shield can only take so much damage before it gets activated, protecting the castle from further attacks. That shield only lasts so long before it is either manually or automatically disabled. Then the shield goes on cooldown and your castle is vulnerable until the shield recharges and is able to “pop” and protect your castle again, if necessary.
Disabling it when being attacked means that your shield takes no damage. This allows for attackers to be actively defended against without worry that the shield will activate. It also gives the castle owners fuller strength for when they’re not online/actively able to defend, than a shield that’s been pecked away at.
