Time lag when I resume campaign, after pause?

I resume a campaign, and the adwords help page says it should show it's active immediately. There is a green dot, but there is also a red banner across the top that says it's still paused. Any help appreciated.

Hi Steven,

The red banner oftenly is inaccurate or just lagging. I would bet that your campaign is already active. But to make sure you can check from Ad Preview tool

Hi Steve, the red banner will normally include words along the lines of "last checked 2 hours ago", or similar.  If you've enabled your Campaigns and all else is well, they'll run from the moment you enabled them, but it may take 2 hours+ for the banner to vanish.

 

To check your Ads are running, you can use the Ad Preview tool, or simply hover your mouse over the bubble in the status column of any Keyword that should be enabled, where you should see "Showing Ads Right now?" and Yes, beneath it in green.
