while($row = mysql_fetch_array($query))
$_SESSION['Username'] = $row['username'];
$_SESSION['UserID'] = $row['ID'];

mysql_query() is returning false because your query is failing. Change your query to this to get more info:

$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `Users` WHERE `Username` = '{$_POST['user']}' AND `Password` = '$pass'") or die(mysql_error());

And make sure you pass all user input through mysql_real_escape_string() before using it in a query.

And 'sintax' is actually spelt 'syntax' :p

(sorry, felt the need to add that in there)
