Button_Click: Execute JavaScript then standard post back

I have my security as part of the Master page with Login/Logout buttons. When a user logs in I want to first execute some JavaScript to disable the button and change the cursor style to "wait" and then PostBack and execute the btnLogin_Click server side code.  So far I have the code below, but need to know which button caused the PostBack so I only execute the code in the "If" statement if btnLogin was clicked and not any other button on the page. Is this the right approach or is there a simpler way to handle this situation?

<asp:Button ID="btnLogin" runat="server" Text="Login" OnClientClick="this.disabled=true;this.value='Wait...';'wait';__doPostBack('btnLogin','');" />
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
  If IsPostBack Then
    btnLogin_Click(sender, e)
  End If
End Sub
Protected Sub btnLogin_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnLogin.Click
End Sub
