Hourglass Icon for Processing

I would like to indicate that an asp script is being processed (hourglass, ticking clock, etc) to pages that take more than a second or two to process.  Any ideas on a good option?

The problem I am having in implementing any of these is that the form submits to the same page and the script that it processes is in the head of that page.  As a result the page doesn't load until the script is done processing.  Can I show an icon "onclick" that will go away when the page reloads?
do some test with an alternate page
once it works as you want with a new test page, go to rethink your current page
