You can configure it to do this, by setting xdm (or gdm or wdm or
whateverdm), to only start in runlevel 5 and be killed in all
others. "man update-rc.d" for the "Debian Way" of doing this.

You can also tailor the runlevels to do more complex things.  For
example my laptop uses runlevel 2 by default, this is basic stand
alone mode.  Runlevel 3 is configured to tie into the lab NIS and
automount maps.
