However when I'm in X and choose the exit option I just get an X-Windows

slows things down a tad. I know there must be a less rude way to close down .
I'm re-booting back into Windoze quite a bit for the time being so it would
be handy to sort out.
as someone else suggested control alt F1 will get you a console..
you could also switch to wdm which is a xdm fork that has (IMO) a
nicer looking login dialog and a menu that includes halt, reboot and
exit options which let you shutdown and reboot from the login screen
(requiring the root password or optionally any valid user password)
it also has about a hundred less active bugs in the debian bug database ;-)
