What happens if you go 'AFK' in Roblox?

Typically, most Roblox games will kick you if you are AFK too long. This is usually around the 20-minute mark, meaning if you are away from the keyboard and your character remains inactive for this time, you will be removed from the game.

Make sure you do not remain AFK for 20 minutes, or you may come back and find that you are no longer in the game. You can prevent this by limiting how long you are AFK or by returning before the 20-minute mark and moving your character.
