Can you post some code, perhaps just a code snippet?

In a normal PyQt application, if you only create one window and start the
application's event loop, then closing that window will cause the event
loop to stop running. The property I mentioned will tell PyQt to keep
running the event loop even when the last/only window has been closed.

It shouldn't cause Python to quit as well. That depends on what else is
happening in the program.
