Default Force carbonation problem

First time Kegging and I am having problems force carbonating my beer. After racking to my keg I increased my pressure to 35psi rolled my keg around for about 4-5 min. left the pressure up and left it over night. This morning "no" carbonation. Any thoughts

Amber Ale
Irish Red ALE

Octane IPA kit from Midwest Homebrewing 9.8% ABV
Cooper Pilsner
Keg: Opa-Opa Strong

Last Brew: Australian Lager / And an all grain

Fermenting Now: German Ale

I had a similar problem, but then realized I had neglected to turn my check valve/shutoff combo on to actually let the gas into the keg... it's probably something simple like that! Maybe check if the gas connection is seated correctly in the gas post? Rolling the keg around can knock them off.
