The obvious answer is "as short a time as possible". With that said, I usually allow a couple of minutes for fluids to get moving on warm mornings, but up here in Ontario in winter it gets pretty cold some mornings which requires a little extra for defrosting windows etc. I usually try to get moving as soon as it's safe to do so. Idling wastes fuel, contributes to air pollution, and is not good for an engine. Even if you feel better by going easy on the gas for the first few miles, at least your moving.
