I've been told by Ford that cleaning process takes 15 to 30 minutes depending on your speed. The faster you are going, the faster it will clean.
If you don't let it complete, it will start the regen then next time you drive it. As for getting a "completed clean message", I"ve never seen such a thing.
I believe the canister collects soot to a certain level. Then fuel is dumped into the cannister and rpms get very high in order to burn off the soot. THis is very basic explanation.
I can tell you that mine would regen every 40 to 60 miles. Never give a finished message.
