I guess it runs xdm or gdm as a service; then you will get this behaviour.
/etc/init.d/xdm stop
/etc/init.d/gdm stop

If that's the thing that cause you problems, either uninstall those
packages, or simply remove the xdm/gdm entries in your /etc/rcX.d
directories where X is the runlevel.

(I know there is some GUI program to do this as well, but the way I see it
that is more complicated than doing it directly)
