The IRC Specification specifically allows clients to mention whether they are here or away. As such, almost all clients have the two commands /away and /back. Mibbit is no exception.

Furthermore, Mibbit has auto-away and auto-back features.

When you are away, the Mibbit client changes the color of your nick to gray, and moves your nick to the bottom of the userlist. These functions may be changed in preferences.

Commands

{{#set:Client=Main}} {{#set:Client=Widget}}{{#set:Type=IRC}}/away [reason]

Sets your status as 'away', possibly showing a message to users why.
Output: --- yourNick is away (reason)

{{#set:Client=Main}} {{#set:Client=Widget}}{{#set:Type=IRC}}/back

Tells the IRCd that you are back.
Output: --- yourNick is back
