Not sure why, but my checkbox is not doing anything when checked, even though I have the code set to do something. See code below.
<asp:Label ID="lblNPC" runat="server" Text="Non-Public Contact Information" 
        AssociatedControlID="pnlNonPublicContact" CssClass="subheader" 
        Width="305px"></asp:Label>
    <asp:Panel ID="pnlNonPublicContact" runat="server" BorderStyle="None" 
        CssClass="panels">
        <p class="label_checkbox_pair">
            <asp:CheckBox ID="chkMSame" runat="server" CssClass="black12Bold" TabIndex="11" 
                Text="Address information is the Same As Above" 
                oncheckedchanged="chkMSame_CheckedChanged" />
        </p>
<div id="lineup">
     <p>
     <asp:Label ID="lblMAddress" runat="server" Text="Mailing Address"

You have to enable the 'AutoPostback' property of the checkbox to true. Then only server side events get triggered.

<asp:CheckBox ID="chkMSame" runat="server" CssClass="black12Bold" TabIndex="11"  AutoPostBack="true" 
                Text="Address information is the Same As Above" 
                OnCheckedChanged="chkMSame_CheckedChanged"  />

by default autopostbacks are disabled on check boxes, radiobuttons, drop downs etc

Thanks for the points, vcbertini,

PostBack
PostBack is the name given to the process of submitting an ASP.NET page to the server for processing . PostBack is done if certain credentials of the page are to be checked against a database (such as verification of username and password). This is something that a client machine is not able to accomplish and thus these details have to be ‘posted back’ to the server
