Knowing what you know today, would you shut down the world in this situation? -

Humans will be of no benefit to self aware AI. AI will be able to self replicate and improve on their own design at a faster rate than any human.
That's assuming that AI could even be self aware though. I'm of the opinion that while AI could have the potential do your job and his job and her job better than everybody, it wouldn't be able to act under its own will and would have severe limitations to achieving such an end.

Agree. But, with self awareness? Once that genie is out of the bottle...Will is a question of awareness and need vs want. What would AI need, when it requires nothing from humans?

At the risk of being cast in another Joker movie, I can't say I'm a big fan of society.

Being totally honest though, I probably would push the button. Not because I have any deep philosophical or political reason, but because it would be interesting to me. It would at least allow me to test some hypothesis on what 'societal collapse' would actually looklike. Personally, I suspect it would be extremely mundane. Everyone expects that when the government falls or we run out of oil or whatever, that everyone's going to go Mad Max on each other, but that's not really conducive to self preservation. Working together for to ensure survival is how our ancestors survived.

Either way, I know how to grow potatoes and build a lean-to, I'll be fine.
