Is it OK to run a system state backup while a server is running during work hours?  This is a windows 2008 r2. I am looking to start backing up the system state but I am not sure if there are any rules about when this should not be run.

The general advise is to run the System State backup during off-peak hours. Having said that, I don't think there's any issue running it during the working hours to take a one-off backup. Generally systemstate backup's aren't that time consuming - again depending on the size of the domain.
Expect some slowness whilst the backup is running.
