Dropping into MacsBug 6.6.3 on a new iMac

How do I drop into the new MacsBug 6.6.3 on a new iMac, that doesn’t have the ‘power key’ button on the keyboard? With the older iMacs, I pressed the command key and that power key.

What a pain, huh?
I am pretty sure there is an interrupt switch on the side of the iMac, where all the ports and stuff are, near the reset button.
I think...

just do it as you would have on an older machine, but with command-media eject. those keys may not work to shut down your imac, but they will bring up macsbug.

I was under the impression that Command-power brought up the shut down dialog? So I had been told... as the alternative to the missing power button...
And now you're saying Command-power drops into Macsbug?
Theoretically on the new keyboard it would have to be Command-Command-Eject... but that can't possibly be done!
Has anyone tried mapping the mute button to be a power button?
