How do I stop my W540 laptop switching itself into Airplane Mode?

If I put a battery which has a low charge (~12%) in my laptop then the computer switches itself in to Airplane Mode.
This is a big problem because in Airplane Mode no charging can occur. If I switch to any other power mode then the laptop switches itself back to Airplane Mode.
This does not happen with a charged battery.
