Watch Episode III again, especially the beginning when the duo are heading towards the Invisible Hand
. Obi-Wan yells about the shields being still up, and Anakin promptly blows them up. So I would assume the entrances to hangers have their own shields, and they are disabled when craft enter/leave. Though I would think otherwise, I guess that's how it works.
