I have a 20" G5 iSight iMac with an Apple wireless keyboard - I've been trying without success to boot in single-user mode (need to repair the disk - have DiskWarrior to boot from but the optical drive is not working with anything other than audio CDs) .

 

Should the wireless keyboard be able to do this? I've tried dozens of times, and occasionally the machine has made different noises during the start-up process, or taken longer to start, but to no effect.

 

I've been pressing and holding the "s" key as soon as the start-up chime sounds.
