JSAPI Map in Ajax TabContainer - no background mapping

I have a AJAX TabContainer with two tab panels. I have some summary details on the first tab and I have my ESRI JSAPI map on the second right tab.

The problem I have is that if the tab containg the ESRI JSAPI map is not the active tab when the page loads, my background map does not load. I can see my pan arrows and zoom slider but i have no background map.

I dont really want the map to be the active tab when the page loads but I am not sure how to fix the background mapping issue if the map isnt the active tab when the page loads.

Any help much appreciated.
