    I would like to have a local copy of WP to use while creating a new site without having the site go live. I haven't found any other way to keep a site from being live while I create it. Can I just install WP on my desktop to use as a sandbox?

    Surely. That is normal way of thought.
    It is localhost installation. You can check the documentation (http://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page). There is a separate support thread for localhost installation too - http://wordpress.org/support/forum/localhost-installs
