I suspect you don't want to get to run level 3, you just want to shut
down your x server.
Ctrl+Alt+Backspace - if that doesn't work, or it keeps restarting...
# /etc/init.d/kdm stop (or gdm if gnome, or whatever you dm is)
There is a very useful section on the Debian wiki for what you're doing.
You'll need it for the nouveau stuff ;-)

There must be some mistake.
We don't make mistakes.
