This is a frontend bug. System Events should be permanently enabled.
I filed a bug. Meanwhile, you can use bulk actions to enable it.

Along with Patrick’s reply and bug which we will clean up shortly, even though the System Notification Event says it is disabled events are still created. The event type works differently than all others. Its events are manually triggered outside of the EventProcessorEngine and will fire no matter what the state of the event definition itself is. So rest assured even if your event definition says it is disabled, you did not miss any events that may have fired while it was marked as such.

Thanks for the reply Patrick and Zacko. I thought I had added to my OP that even though it states it is disabled it seems to still be enabled and working just fine.
