Thinkpad will only re-charge if it is "off" (or sleeping)

Concerning a 755c ThinkPad.
I have owned many different models of ThinkPads and have never had this problem with any other unit. Plus I have 2 of these 755c Thinkpads, and both of them are doing the same thing. IBM service center indicates that it may be a battery problem. I think it very strange that I bought two seperate units and both are experiencing the exact same problem?????????
Anyway - All works well except that neither of these units will re-charge the battery while being used... It will only re-charge if the unit is is either off or in standby mode.
Do any of you very smart and nice people have any advice for me? I can return them to the seller but I really want to keep them. And I've worked very hard loading my software on them and all. By the way - They are running win95.
