You should initalize ~/.xinitrc properly, then "startx" will
be fully sufficient. For example, in case of MATE, the line

	exec mate-session

should do the trick. When the mate-session program exits, the
X server will shut down as intended.

Looks a bit suspicious, but could be due to missing startup file.
Check /var/log/Xorg.0.log for "EE" lines which indicate errors.
