Windows 7 not working online

I have some laptops and even though it says in Explorer that they are ONLINE with our file server, any changes done on the laptops aren't seen on the server until the machine is sync'd.

I was assuming that when working ONLINE, the computer would work as if offline files was not enabled and thus ONLY use the network version of the file.

I'm having the issue now that the laptops are in the office, networked, but files are not reflecting current versions until they are sync'd. This isn't good enough for our office environment and I was wondering if anyone had a fix to force windows to use the network file when ONLINE?
