The RadToolTipManager uses an UpdatePanel to load the user control via AJAX. This means that you cannot avoid the AJAX in this scenario. In a simple page there are ways to disable the AJAX when you detect that you are exporting (see here
for an example), but this is not possible in all cases and this is one such.
All the best,
the Telerik team
