How to Trigger JQuery function from code behind

Is it possible to trigger a JQuery function from code behind?  I have attached the JQuery function and a couple screen shots reflecting what happens when you click on the image/link (screenshots reflect closed and open state).

Any help is very much appreciated.  

I am trying to trigger the click event from code behind, so I can essentially show the open state.  The reason is because when you click on "Sign in" it posts back.  If user is not authenticated, I display a message below the textboxes. Right now, since page is posting back, the control returns to closed state.  

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {

        $(".signin").click(function (e) {
            e.preventDefault();
            $("fieldset#signin_menu").toggle();
            $(".signin").toggleClass("menu-open");
        });

        $("fieldset#signin_menu").mouseup(function () {
            return false
        });
        $(document).mouseup(function (e) {
            if ($(e.target).parent("a.signin").length == 0) {
                $(".signin").removeClass("menu-open");
                $("fieldset#signin_menu").hide();
            }
        });
    });
</script>

// Try something like this:

String script = @"
<script language=JavaScript>
  alert( 'Calling my Javascript function...' );
  $('.signin').trigger( 'click' );
</script>
";

this.RegisterClientScriptBlock( "myScript", script );
