Its true that people usually didn't live in them all the time because lets face it, they were built for defense and not creature comfort even in medieval times.

They wouldn't be totally abandoned though, usually a small detachment to at least hold them. Castles were abandoned in the later middle ages due to gunpowder cannons rather than just because. Whole new fortifications had to be built to defend against cannons.
