[Tutor] run in "deamon" mode?

How can a make a python script run in "deamon mode"? (on a linux box)

That is, I want to run the program via "python myfile.py" and have it drop me back to the command line.  The program should continue running until I kill it via it's PID, the machine shuts down, or the program itself decides to shutdown.   It should _not_  die when I simply log-out, etc.

Is there a standard library module to help with this?

-- Thank you
