ASP.NET iPad Development - Help needed with Materpages and Postback

I'm working on an .NET/HTML5/CSS3 application and I'm running into a bit of a snag.

I have navigation buttons on my Masterpage.  When I launch my application from the home screen icon and navigate around for a bit, everything seems to be work fine.  However, if the application is idol for for a minute or so the buttons in the Masterpage stop working.  

Any ideas how to fix this?

I found the answer myself so I'm going to post it here in hopes it helps someone else who is having this problem.

On each asp.net page (not the MasterPage) you need to drop-in this piece of code:

    Protected Sub Page_PreInit(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.PreInit
        If Request.UserAgent IsNot Nothing AndAlso Request.UserAgent.IndexOf("AppleWebKit", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase) > -1 Then
            Me.ClientTarget = "uplevel"
        End If
    End Sub
