I have an ASP.Net site. I'm using membership ad the login control. I need the remember me option to work. Right now it does not. I set the sessionsate timeout to 1440 in the web.config file. The code in the site master page is below. Is ther something that will cause the remember me option to not work? I'm not very familiar with the login/logout process. Thanks.

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string name = SessionHelper.GetFirstName();

        Page.Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);
        Page.Response.Cache.SetExpires(DateTime.Now - new TimeSpan(1, 0, 0));
        Page.Response.Cache.SetLastModified(DateTime.Now);
        Page.Response.Cache.SetAllowResponseInBrowserHistory(false);
        Page.Response.Cache.SetNoStore();
        if (Request.IsAuthenticated)
        {

        }
        else
        {
            Response.Redirect("~/Default.aspx");
        }
    }

    protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Page.Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);
        Page.Response.Cache.SetExpires(DateTime.Now - new TimeSpan(1, 0, 0));
        Page.Response.Cache.SetLastModified(DateTime.Now);
        Page.Response.Cache.SetAllowResponseInBrowserHistory(false);
        Page.Response.Cache.SetNoStore();
    }

    protected void HeadLoginStatus_LoggedOut(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        FormsAuthentication.SignOut();
        Roles.DeleteCookie();
        Session.Clear();
    }

if (Request.Cookies["myCookie"] != null)
        {
            HttpCookie cookie = Request.Cookies.Get("myCookie");
            String UserName = cookie.Values["username"];
            this.Login1.RememberMeSet = !(String.IsNullOrEmpty(UserName));
        }

Once they're authenticated call FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(UserName, true);

Setting the second parameter to true tells it to persist across sessions

Where does the code go? The code I posted is in my master page. Should it go there or in the login page load event?

It should go just after you have confirmed their username and password are valid on the login page
