I suppose it depends on the situation in which you're operating.  If I'm 
near an internet connection, I can do it immediately after the contest 
ends.  However, in my QRP-Portable escapades in VHF+ contests I log on 
paper and transfer the logs to a computer logging program when I return 
home.  I often don't get home until several hours after the contest is 
over and by that time all I'm interested in is sleep! After the 10 GHz 
contest weekends this year, I didn't even get home until the next day.

48 hours is very reasonable for me for all contests but 15 minutes is 
often impossible.

I'll bet many Rovers share my sentiments.
