Welcome to the Lenovo Community New11 !
Given the age of your laptop, the fact that it's occasionally left plugged in overnight and from what you have described it sounds like the battery needs replacing. I would also check the adapter / charger to see that is it outputting the proper 20 VDC .

There's a battery option in Lenovo's Energy Management softare called Maxiimum Battery Life. If it's checked the battery will charge. If the option Optimized Battery Health is checked your battery will stop charging. This works for me. Hope this can help others.

Now a days hardware vendors ship their Li-ion battery with battery firmware.So this is controlled by power management utility. If we usages our laptop with AC adaptor all time. Then battery threshold automatically set to 60% to prevent damage or over charge condition.
Battery firmware is only controlled by the power management utility.
For more Details you can read from here

I received my new laptop today E560. I had the same message about the battery not charging. After trying to follow some of the suggestions in this thread without success, I decided to take the battery out again. That's when I noticed there are two tabs to lock it in place. The first one autolocks. The second one was set to unlocked. Once that was set to locked position, the battery started charging!
Hope this helps someone who is having an equally non-focused moment :-)

I had a lot of trouble with this issue. So many solutions but nothing works.
It turns out that if the battery is in the 55-60% range and if the lenovo settings for the battery is set to Conservation mode, then it will not charge beyond that range . Use this setting if you intend to have the laptop mostly plugged in to preserve battery life.
