I am not a Python expert but this should give you the idea.

You are merging three timer-based loops.  The way to do that is to create a new timer-based loop with the least-common-denominator of the individual timers.  In this case, I made it a one-second loop.  Each time through the loop, each of your actions "checks" to see if it is time for it to execute.  If so, it does.  Then wait a second and check again to see what needs to be done.

import bugdisp
import time
import os

# for 101 seconds, check each second ...

for i in range(0, 100):
	# First time only, start wbugdisp
	if ( i == 0 ): os.system('wbugdisp.exe')

	# First and last time, savetext
	if ( i == 0 ) || ( i == 100 ): bugdisp.sendCommand('savetext c:\hi2393993.txt ' )

	# Every ten seconds, do it
	if ( i < 10 ) == 0: bugdisp.sendCommand('x A90 1')

	# Wait for the next second to tick
	time.sleep(1)

What do you want the merged script to do?  I don't think that's obvious from the question you've asked.

Sorry, I had a typo in the last test.

import bugdisp
import time
import os

# for 101 seconds, check each second ...

for i in range(0, 100):
	# First time only, start wbugdisp
	if ( i == 0 ): os.system('wbugdisp.exe')

	# First and last time, savetext
	if ( i == 0 ) || ( i == 100 ): bugdisp.sendCommand('savetext c:\hi2393993.txt ' )

	# For the first ten seconds, do this
	if ( i < 10 ): bugdisp.sendCommand('x A90 1')

	# Wait for the next second to tick
	time.sleep(1)
