AFK is an acronym for the phrase "away from keyboard". Away from keyboard means, quite literally, that a player is going to be away from their computer and not available for a period of time. This phrase is used when a player will be away for both short and long durations: a player might say "AFK" when they are going to get a drink, or alternatively when they are leaving their computer to visit the shops. Usually, however, it will be used when a player is away for less than 20 minutes as Roblox will disconnect players who aren't active for 20 minutes.
