Page_Load gets called when a page is loaded, correct?  I have a case where I see it getting called only on the first load.  Maybe I'm not understanding something, or maybe the page is never totally unloaded.  But, my page is displayed the first time, I get Page_Load event, and then I click the X in the upper right corner to close it.  Now, the second time the page is displayed I do not get the Page_Load event.  Amy ideas what is wrong?  I'm running inside Visual Studio.

Page_load is called everytime the page is refreshed,  It is part of the page life cycle.  The page only lives as long as a new request has not happened.
What is making you believe that Page_Load is not happening.
Do you have code that is not executing in the page_load
Put a break point at the start of the page_load.
You will see it stop.

maybe you have caching enabled

Do you mean a breakpoint is not hit or do you mean the code in page_load is not run? The break points will only hit if you run the page from the VS.

yes.  I have a break point, and I only get the Page_Load event once.

As I said, the breakpoint will only hit if you run the page from within the visual studio.
