ctrl - alt - backspace

telinit 3

Just a few of the many ways, etc. The first one will not work if you start X at bootup, as it will just kill and respawn X with those keystrokes.

If you use xinit/startx, you can generally just close your window manager and it will close your X session along with it, assuming that your window manager was not started as a background process.
