Are you sure it's not gone behind your other windows? This is what seems to happen by default on OS X with matplotlib.

I ran this simple script taken from a book:

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

squares = [1, 4, 9, 16, 25]

... but although the script runs without error it doesn't display
anything, doesn't terminate and is unresponsive to either Ctrl+C or Ctrl+D.
