Collapsing WMC with remote

I just picked up a Media Center remote (RC126) for WMC.
aim - Audio & Wireless Solutions

Does anyone know how to collapse WMC with the remote. That is I want to minimize the WMC screen using the remote.

Note there is a quarter moon button but this seems to put the entire computer in stand-by mode.
