Is it possible to run a dedicated server without sacrificing the use of a steam account for the time that the server is being run?

dedicated servers that use the standalone software don't require attached steam accounts. So, yes.

Would allow you to do it that way.

and since you don't need to have purchased HL2 to run a source dedicated server you can create a dummy steam account and use that if you really want to.

the standalone would be best though even if you have to download all the files for HL2 again. faster if you have GCFScape and just extract them manually though.
