DNN: Cannot hit Page_Load event of Control

If you are developing a DotNetNuke module and are in the middle of coding and testing that module within a DNN installation and have noticed that you cannot get Visual Studio to enter the Page_Load event of your User Controls and its driving you insane!

Here is the simple solution, make sure your module definition has the Cache Time set to 0. I have found that this is most likely the reason you never see the Page_Load or any other initialization methods hit when debugging your module.
