It should always be off until you need it.

Image stabilization works on a cycle rate somewhere around 50 to 100 times per second. It is designed to work fine at slow shutter speeds like 1/30 of a second. If you are using it and shooting at high speed like 1/500 of a second you can only catch a partial stabilization cycle. You might be lucky at catch it at the end when the image is stabilized, but more likely you are likely to catch it when the either the lens element or the sensor is in motion and it messes the picture up. I imagine that there are some makers who are turning it off in the background when shutter speeds go up, but not most.
