Sounds like the GDM/XDM/ login screen is not starting back up. The
default X background is bright blue. It should be overlayed with the
window manager specified stuff. ctl-alt-bkspc is killing X so the
login screen reappears.

Look in the /var/log/X.org logs for clues on why things are failing.

I'm assuming the system is in runlevel 5.

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you
gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his
own tail. It won't fatten the dog.
