Run level 4 problem

Hi there people:
I switched to runlevel 4 and most of the times , when i log out and go back to the login manager , my mouse don't work , it blocks out and i have to turn my computer off with the aid of the tab key to move around the board or i have to restart xserver if i want to relogin otherwise i won't be abble to work on X.
I would apreciate any help , but it's not a big deal cause i can always change to runlevel 3 and everything works fine but recently i changed my passwd (root has now about 15 characters) and it gets annoying sometimes to have to write it everytime i want to turn off . thanks a lot .

If you want to boot into an X login prompt, you'll most likely want to use use runlevel 5 instead of 4.
