"Busy Animation" without an UpdatePanel

I have an Upload form on my page. Given ASP:FileUpload's proclivity for getting in a fight with the AJAX:UpdatePanel, I'm running the form sans the panel. The form runs great, but I'm getting users with 100+ thousand record files to upload, and at times it takes upwards of a minute to load their files into the database.

Now, if the AJAX:AsyncFileUpload worked on our server (there's some obscure issue with the server that forced me into using ASP:FileUpload instead) I'd be using an UpdatePanel, and subsequently an UpdateProgress... But I can't use either, as the form has to exist outside an UpdatePanel to allow the file to actually be detected.

So this brings me to the question:

Is there a simple and elegant way to implement "UpdateProgress" like functionality, without using AJAX:UpdatePanel/AJAX:UpdateProgress?

Here's some very basic way you can try:

1: Add a div and make it hidden:
2: Make it visible via jquery when your upload button is clicked.
3: The div should hide itself when the postback is finished.

Note: You can make the content of that div as fancy as you like. e.g. add an progress gif

<script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
            $("#btnUploadprog").click(function () {
                $("#progress").show();
            });
        });
    </script>

<asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" />
    <asp:Button ID="btnUploadprog" runat="server" Text="Upload with Progress" 
        onclick="btnUploadprog_Click" />
    <div id="progress" style="display:none">
        Upload in progress...
    </div>

I gave that a whirl, but I got nothing appearing at all.

Code used:
    <%--SAP BW Actuals Uploader--%>
    <asp:Panel ID="pnlSAPBWActuals" runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            $(function () {
                $("#btnUploadSAPBWActuals").click(function () {
                    $("#pnlUploader_SAPBWActuals_Progress").show();
                });
            });
        </script>
        <div id="pnlUploader_SAPBWActuals_Progress" style="display:none">
            <img src="images/loading_animation_liferay.gif" />
        </div>

        <div style="padding: 5px;">
            <asp:FileUpload ID="fuSAPBWActuals" runat="server" UploaderStyle="Modern" Width="500" CssClass="submit" ClientIDMode="AutoID" />
            <asp:Button ID="btnUploadSAPBWActuals" runat="server" Text="Upload" OnClick="btnUploadSAPBWActuals_Click" CssClass="submit" style="margin-left: 10px;" />
        </div>
    </asp:Panel>

Are you getting any javascript errors?
Make sure you have added reference to jquery.

e.g. <script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
