How to run a command asking password in background?

http://askubuntu.com – I want to run a command sudo apt-get update &. However after hitting enter, when i hit for jobs, it shows the status of these commands as stopped. My guess is that by pushing the process into background I did not provide it an opportunity to ask password. Is there a way to run a process in background which requires a password ? (HowTos)
