1.AutoPostBack="true" on a Dropdownlist will do a postback
2. TextMode="Password" on a Textbox will clear contents after a postback

There are different ways to solve this 'by design' scenario. The following are suggestions:

a) Save the password in session or in a hidden field and put it back after the postback(not sure about the security risks involved here).
b) Add the textbox below the dropdown, so that the user enters password after drop down has already done a postback
c) Take the textbox outside the updatepanel
d) place the password box on a seperate tab...

which ever the action is causing the postback action place this code

string strPasswordValue = TextBox1.Text.Trim();
TextBox1.Attributes.Add("Value", strPasswordValue);

Over there

like

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string strPasswordValue = TextBox1.Text.Trim();
        TextBox1.Attributes.Add("Value", strPasswordValue);
    }
