Issues with UpdatePanel using DropDownList and Button together

I have a UpdatePanel that contains 2 DropDownList controls, a Button and a Gridview control. When you select the first dropdown which contains state it calls the eventhandler to populate the second dropdown with the cities from that state.

The problem comes in that when you press the button, it does not call its eventhandler. But if I press the button prior to selecting a state, it will fire the eventhandler. Can someone please help with this issue. My markup is below.

<asp:UpdatePanel ID="updSearch" UpdateMode="Conditional" runat="server">
    <Triggers>
        <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="btnSearch" EventName="Click" />
    </Triggers>
    <ContentTemplate>
        <asp:DropDownList ID="lstState" AutoPostBack="true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="lstState_SelectedIndexChanged" runat="server" /><br />
        <asp:DropDownList ID="lstCity" runat="server" />
       
        <div  class="divPlaceHolderRow"><br /></div>        
        <div class="divPlaceHolderRow"><asp:Button ID="btnSearch" OnClick="btnSearch_Click" runat="server" Text="Search" /><br /></div>
        <div class="divPlaceHolderRow"><br /></div>
        <div id="DivSearchGrid">
            <asp:GridView ID="grdPharmacy"
                            CssClass="GridViewSearch"  
                            runat="server"
                            Visible="true"
                            OnRowCommand="grdPharmacy_RowCommand"
                            HorizontalAlign="Center"
                            PagerSettings-Visible="true"              
                            AllowPaging ="true"  
                            AllowSorting="true"
                            Caption="Search Results"
                            CaptionAlign="Left"
                            ShowHeader="true"
                            ShowFooter="true" >                 
            <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="Beige" />
            <HeaderStyle CssClass="GridHeader" />
            <RowStyle CssClass="GridRow" />
            <FooterStyle ForeColor="Green" />
            <SelectedRowStyle CssClass="GridSelected" />  
            <PagerStyle CssClass="GridPager" />
            <PagerSettings Mode="NextPrevious"
                            NextPageText="Next >" 
                            PreviousPageText="< Prev" />                        
            </asp:GridView>
        </div>

    </ContentTemplate>      
</asp:UpdatePanel>

My first guess would be that the button is the only async post-back trigger, so when the DropDownList is selected, the AutoPostBack=true forces a post-back, which is not a trigger for the UpdatePanel...

This was part of the issue. It also had to do with the update panels I was using.
