    Can someone help me.
    Macbook only charges the battery with it closed or off when I am using the battery does not charge.

    I've reset the charger system

    Have you checked the charger on another machine? It could be failing to provide enough power to charge while the machine is running.

    No, but I'll try.

    Even when the battery is 100% with the charger connected it discharges.

    If you haven't already, you may also want to check the port and the MagSafe connector to see if there's dirt or something inside. May need careful cleaning.

    Cleaning inside the machine?

    Not inside the case, but in the MagSafe port and the hollow space in the MagSafe connector. If you look, you'll see where dirt or other things can collect and interfere with the connection. (It does have a MagSafe connector, right? The kind that connects with magnetic force.)

    Does it actually drain right down while plugged in?

    I ask because mine often says "not charging" when it's nearly full ( 95%+).

    Sanpete was referring to these areas, the contact areas on the plug and directly inside the port (not the board inside the computer.) I agree checking for any oxidation and cleaning this is a great place to start...I generally use a dry soft bristled toothbrush. I also agree with trying another power cable. If you have not already, for good measure it may also be worth resetting the SMC & the PRAM.
