login control wont work correctly with masterpage

Hello,  I have a login control that will not work properly when the login page is displayed in the master page. It works correctly if not using a master page. It will authenticate if the login button is manually clicked but does not work if the keyboard enter button is pressed. It is like it cannot recieve focus.

Any ideas why?

Ok, so I had a image button on the master page that was displaying the sites logo. This was recieving focus and causing a postback to the default.aspx and not completing the login process.
Hi gogetsome

If that to dint work and if you want to set the focus explicitly.
Then asp.net 2.0 provides new focus method

So you can also try this.login1.focus() in page load method

Good luck
