Three weeks at 70 degrees is the baseline for most beers to carb up. Colder temps and higer gravities take longer. Fridge temps will basically stop carbonation.
Note that once a beer is carbed, it can still be green (darker beers especially get this). Be prepared to wait longer to have really good beer.
