SSMS will allow the login to view Job Activity Monitor dialog only if the login has vew server state permission set. here is the syntax to grant this permission:

grant view server state to your_login_name

The login name should be typed without the single quotes.

But Oleg, This is the SA. Does the login with SA needs this?

@Katie: Sorry, I did not realize that you connect as SA who does not need this permission set. Another source of this problem could be installing SSMS 2008 Express and installing only "Basic Tools". There is a short post on main SSC site suggesting to install SP1: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic885701-391-1.aspx
