    Long ago my computer had a simple timer as part of the clock. I could set it
    for, say, an hour and 60 min. later I'd hear a beep. A recent search showed
    niothing. Does such a tool exist with my WP SP3? Thanks,

    Natively - no. Windows XP has nothing like you describe (Windows XP RTM,
    SP1, SP1a, SP2 or SP3...)

    I use Scheduled Task. I use one I call Food Timer, it plays a wav or mp3
    I made when time is up. very easy.
