I recently downloaded Python 3.4 on my Mac (running on Yosemite 10.10.2) and every time I try and open Idle, the icon just keeps jumping and the application never opens. When I click on the icon after it stops jumping it just says "Application Not Responding". I've also tried downloading ActiveTCL to see if it helps but it doesn't as that application doesn't open either. Any suggestions?

Try launching IDLE from a Terminal window command line shell with:

/usr/local/bin/python3.4 -m idlelib

and see if any error messages are reported.  Also please report what is printed when this is run in a command shell:

/usr/local/bin/python3.4 -c 'import sys;print(sys.version)'

No followup, no issue.  If IDLE did not run but python did, the next thing to have tried would have been 
.../python3.4 -c "import tkinter; tkinter.Tk()"
