Do you have beersmith or a similar software? that will give you pretty detailed info re carbonation. In terms of length of time to carb I shake the keg until gas stops entering and then it is ready to drink in a few hours. I think it takes 2-3 days otherwise.

thanks

i think all the links and blurbs i've read say anywhere from a few hours to a week, depending on how forceful you want to be.  i just thought there would be a better guide.  something like- at 34 degrees and 10 psi you will get 2.4 volumes of co2.

thanks!

There is a good chart in here http://morebeer.com/public/pdf/kegging.pdf.  They give you carb levels for style also.
