Try to close the request stream before retrieving the response.
You can accomplish this by using "using" blocks:

public string login(string url, string postData)
    byte[] requestData = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(postData);
    HttpWebRequest webRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
    webRequest.Method = "POST";
    webRequest.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";
    webRequest.ContentLength = requestData .Length;
    using (Stream requestStream = webRequest.GetRequestStream())
        webpageStream.Write(requestData, 0, requestData.Length);
    } //this will close the requestStream automatically

    WebResponse webpageResponse = webRequest.GetResponse();
    using (responseReader = new StreamReader(webpageResponse.GetResponseStream()))
        return webpageReader.ReadToEnd();
    } //the reader will close the underlaying stream too

(Besides, I've done some style improvements you should adopt, the code will be a far more readable)

Never do that!
What is Response? (A rhetorical question)
This is called bad side effects...
