I'm assuming you mean when the normal "start menu" way won't work. Ctrl-alt-backspace should kill the x server and dump you back to the cli. Then startx to restart x. If you just want to quickly jump to a non x console and back to x, you can use ctrl-alt-Fn and alt-Fn. Remember that while in x you need to use the ctrl and that the first x session is usually F7.
