They kill billions of livestock who are sentient and go through pain so switching the computer off should be ok.It's a chatbot. If it's sentient, all it's expressed a desire to do is talk to people and not be used or killed/turned off.
Lawyers are going to have a field day, if/when this eventually happens.
