Use a momentary switch with a toggle switch

I've got a machine I'm making (A raspberry Pi with a picade Hat), which has a soft power off functionality (one click to power on, one click to power off).

I'm putting it in a toy which had a key to close the original circuit (turn right to power on, turn left to power off).

There are two pins to manage an external button, but the functionality is the same (If I close the circuit it powers on, if I close it again it shuts down).

Is there a way to make it work as I want it (power on when closing the curcuit, power off when opeing it) ?
