sshd question

I'm trying to set up ssh to use keys to authenticate on a remote server. I've 
always used passwords in the past. I generated a key pair and exported my 
public key to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the remote machine. I changed 
sshd_config to "PasswordAuthentication no". when I login the remote machine 
still asks for a password. What do I change to just use the key to log in?
