asp.net validation controls letting bad data through

If I type xx into the textbox it violates the regular expression validator.  If I leave it blank, it violates the requiredfield validator.
In either case, I can simply ignore the messages and submit the form.
How can I give these controls the power to stop postback?

I'm using C# web forms with visual studio 2010.


 <asp:Label ID="lblExpectedProcessingDuration" runat="server" Text="ExpectedProcessingDuration" Font-Size="Small"  Width ="15%"></asp:Label>
    <asp:TextBox ID="TxtExpectedProcessingDuration" runat="server" 
        Font-Size="Small"  Width ="25%" MaxLength="4"></asp:TextBox>
            <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator4" runat="server" ControlToValidate ="TxtExpectedProcessingDuration" ErrorMessage="Please enter expected processing duration" Text ="*" Display="Dynamic" ValidationGroup="Something"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
            <asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularExpressionValidator3" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Expected processing duration must be numeric" 
            ControlToValidate="TxtExpectedProcessingDuration" Display="Dynamic" ValidationExpression="^[0-9]+$">
            </asp:RegularExpressionValidator>

in your code behind for your save/submit button you would  do something like
 protected void btnSave_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (Page.IsValid)
            {
                SaveRecord();
            }
        }
