Default How to enter recovery?

Hi,my phone is rooted and has dual recovery on a locked bootloader.To enter recovery when my phone is switched on i use "reboot manager".
My question is how do i enter recovery when my phone is switched off?
What is the key combination?

No you just press the button and you leave it. You must press it when the led turns pink

You can not use apps when the phone is turned off which is what the OP was asking about.
