At least a month, do not wash it, wax it or use any solvents on the paint for at least a month EVER! "You may rinse it with clean water but nothing else, just rinse to keep the crud off, after 30 days from ppainting you may wash and wax.
41willys, color sanding and buffing the next day on a heat cured paint job is alright because none of the suipplies used contain contaminants. Washing and waxing detergents and coating could contaminate the paint and cause it to bubble or nameless other freakish things. Waxes prevents the paints finish to "breath" and exspend evaporating gases. Just as you said, the length of time depends on the application perameters, but a safe rule of thumb is 30 days
