I have a Dell SBS 2003 standard Server and when I open Task Manager/Processes I see the following Process running at 25-30% constant.

ati2sgag.exe   system

Any ideas?  Is this nessesary?  It's slowing my system.

This is a configuration application for the ATI video card that is in your system.  It is not supposed to be running at all except for the initial configuration of your system and occasionally thereafter.  It sounds like it's misbehaving, though, so you might want to check with Dell to see if there is a driver update that might resolve the problem.

Hope this helps!

Good Job,  Uninstalling the ATI Driver and installing the stock driver listed on Dell for the machine worked.

Now,  How about this,  After installing the stock ATI driver I get the following error;

Ati hotkey poller not running in the Server Management

I've had that ATI hotkey poller error on several servers myself.  It's another of those little applets that video driver mfrs. seem to feel obligated to hang on their software.  AFAIR, it's supposed to allow you to set hotkeys for controlling things like the screen saver and other video settings.  I've even seen posts from people having problems with it similar to the one you were having with the ati2sgag.exe - where it uses a lot of system resources for no good reason.  I don't remember exactly, but there may be a setting in the ATI graphics control panel where you can just turn it off.  Otherwise, you can just ignore the error, unless you feel deprived that this particular applet isn't working on your system.

Cheers!
