I assume you're getting this in a message box - as in exceptions thrown during an AJAX request. You'll have to execute your app using Visual Studio in Debug mode and track the code after the postback throwing this...

No, open the project with VS and press F5. You can set breakpoints in your code, or just wait for an exception to be thrown and not handled, VS will alert you about that.

See for example:

ok, i'll try that.....

when i set the debug=true...

i got a message box stating: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

But this does not happen till about 3-5 minutes of the page sitting there.

I'll try the other debug method, but any ideas about why the other message is popping up....

Yes, you're not initializing one of your objects.
