Battery Will Not Charge When Laptop is Off

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I posted this in the Toshiba group, figured I'd try here too...

Funny thing, first it won't see my primary battery (which is probably
normal, the dumb thing only held 5 minutes anyway, it most likely died),
second it will not charge my select bay battery (which holds 3.5 hours of
charge) if the laptop is off, it only charges it when it's on. If I have it
plugged in when it's off to try and charge it the Power LED is green and
blinking and the Select Bay Battery LED is amber and blinking and no
charging happens. I tried removing the primary battery to see if it was
causing this and it still did the same thing...anyone know what causes this?
It's a Tecra 8100, PIII 750, 512mb ram, Windows 2000 SP4. I checked the
manual, it's says nothing about the power light flashing green and nothing
about the battery light flashing amber. Thanks for anything guys, I'm really
