AJAX Timer Issue

I have an ASP.NET application that uses ajax, update panel, and a timer.  The page should load fully so that the user see's the please wait text/images.  Then a timer should execute a function one time.  Below is my code.  The issue is that I have a function called LoadQuestions.  It can take up to 15 seconds to update data through web services to a seperate application.  If I comment out loadquestions, the timer ticks, then the code executes fine.  If I leave loadquestions in the code, it seems to time out the ajax.  The remaining code executes, but then the page dies and the redirect doesnt complete.  Any ideas?

        //----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Page.MaintainScrollPositionOnPostBack = true;
            ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, typeof(Page), "ScriptDoFocus", Utility.SCRIPT_DOFOCUS.Replace("REQUEST_LASTFOCUS", Request["__LASTFOCUS"]), true);

            if (!IsPostBack)
            {
                if (Session["KEY"] != null)
                {
                    Session["REDIRECT"] = null;
                    Timer1.Enabled = true;
                    Session["Timer"] = null;

You can try and play with the AsyncPostBackTimeout  property of the ScriptManager.

<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager" runat="server" AsyncPostBackTimeout="120"></asp:ScriptManager>

The value is in seconds, so the above line would mean 2 minutes.

Try setting a reasonable value there and see if it helps you.
