Always use strict; and use warnings;. You don't define $__EVENTVALIDATION and $__VIEWSTATE that's why your code send empty values to the target site.

These values are located in the HTML form you receive from the target site and WWW::Mechanize will send these values automatically for you.

So usually you just need to provide login/password (and ParentUID in your example) to process auth page. May be you need to provide button name for the click()... Or may be this is some kind of Javascript magic (try to login in your browser with Javascript disabled)...

Also I'm sure that WWW::Mechanize::Firefox will work for such site (of course you must don't touch __VIEWSTATE and __VIEWSTATE).
