memory not pro-actively marked free?

Instead of doing shutdown, I did init 1, doing away with X windows,
etc.  and in maintenance mode, I did top(1).  However it reported
total memory usage still as high as ever.  How might that be?

P.S. is that the usual way to get rid of X windows if in case one
wants just to use the humble console?  I know there is a startx
program, but no stopx.
