Right -- pythonw.exe is a console-less interpreter. Having no
console, it doesn't have an interactive mode, and since you didn't
give it a script to run, it simply started, found nothing to do, and
then terminated itself.
You need to run idle.pyw, *not* pythonw.exe. The idle.pyw script runs
inside the pythonw.exe interpreter, but the latter can't do anything
