I suppose you are double-clicking on a .py file? Set up the
association to use 'cmd.exe /k'. (Ex on a particular NT4 system I
c:\winnt\system32\cmd.exe /k d:\dman\apps\python20\python.exe %1
as the associated command)
The /k option tells cmd.exe to remain open (gives you the DOS prompt)
once the command that follows the option terminates.
I seem to recall the following, but can't duplicate it on this NT
before the app closes the DOS window, right click on the title bar
in the 'Properties' there is a checkbox option to close the
window automatically when the app terminates
