how long does it take for an eligible ad to become enabled?

Does this occur during business hours only?

For me personally it takes approx 5 minutes. Perhaps somebody can correct me, but I think the age/history of the adwords account can affect approval time as well.

Hello clickball; welcome;

Usually to switch from eligible ( search network only) to approved status  (search partners + display network) requires a human reviewer to check the ad.

Hi clickball,

It does happen during business days/hours. On occasion it can take up to 3 days for ads to be approved. After 3 days I recommend contacting Google.
