I have a form that prompts for a password using an editbox on a modal form. The OK and Cancel buttons work fine to close the form and either continue or abort. I want to capture the Enter and Esc keys in the edit box to simulate the OK click and the Cancel click. I have put code in the keypress event. It calls the click event for the buttons, but then just sits there.

Use the keyeevent to set the modal result of your form to something other than 0, e.g.
form2.ModalResult := 1;

I have a feeling that what you were doing wrong was you were calling the button's onclick event, e.g.
button1.OnClick(self);
instead of
button1.click;

OR... the other way round.

But I could be wrong... :P
