I have never gotten popen to work correctly in windows, maybe you could try writing a batch file or download The Python for Windows extensions
at http://starship.python.net/crew/mhammond/ and do something like.

from win32com.client import constants
import win32con
import win32com
shell = win32com.client.Dispatch("WScript.Shell")
shell.Run('notepad.exe')
shell.SendKeys('And now for something completely different')

but SendKeys only sends to the window with focus
