The described behaviour of Geany is expected and is the same on
non-Windows: the edited file is executed as a Python module.

IDLE just does something else. It seems it runs the module in an
interactive interpreter session.
In theory, it should be possible to do something similar with Geany,
it's probably just a matter of the correct Python interpreter invocation.

However, you probably won't overcome the cmd.exe as the underlying

You can freely change the command Geany executes via Build -> Set Build
