Disable Page on submit

How would I (what is the code) disable an entire page when someone click a submit button.Then enable it again after it processes the data. (The page then reloads)

I've seen it where you show a progress icon rotating and grey out the page so you can see everything although you can't do anything untill the process finishes.

Can anyone show me how this is done?

You will have to use javascript to disable the form. It's easy enough. You just set the form's disabled property to true.

function btnSubmit_onClick(){
   Form1.disabled = true;
   return true;

You'll want to do the opposite on page load:
function page_onLoad(){
   Form1.disabled = false;
   return true;

As far as putting in a "progress icon," you will want to create an animated gif. Put it in the document using the image tags. Only you will want to position it and hide it using CSS. Make sure to give the image tag an id so that you can reference it, and just show it after you disable the form.
