We start off with the bad news
First off: We're gonna ignore fences, because they're not afk.
The produce points earned in a full cycle of 5 rounds is therefore:
Cure plant: 20 points x 3 casts per round x 5 rounds per cycle = 300 points
Bundle Livids: 120 points x 2 casts per round x 2 rounds per cycle = 480 points (240 points if less than 80 Magic)
Fertile Soil: 20 points x 3 casts per round x 5 rounds per cycle = 300 points (150 points if less than 83 Magic)
Fence repair: 20 points x 2 casts per round x 5 rounds per cycle = 200 points (100 points if less than 86 Magic)
Energise Pauline: 100 points x 1 cast per round x 3 rounds per cycle = 300 points (150 points if less than 91 Magic)
The maximum points per cycle a player can earn is, therefore, 1,580 points. At 12 5-minute cycles per hour, the maximum rate a player can earn points is 18,960 points per hour.
Without fences, it's 1380 points per 5 minutes, which results in 16560 points/hr.
For those who are going for completionists', this means it takes 51.3 hours for 850k points. This means an extra 7.1 hours.
Considering that this is going to be much much more afk than normal Livid, you will realize that your tolerance level is much higher.
So now we get to the good part.

In this screenshot, you notice that I have both the farm and Pauline in clickable view. Standing in this square or any square near it will achieve this.
This means that you can "afk" livid by not needing to move your camera around. Notice that my screen is half of 1920x1080, which lets me go on any web browser on the other side of the screen.
Each cycle will take about 20 seconds or so to clear, giving you relatively a lot of time to do whatever you like. (In comparison to other afk skills like cook and fletch, this is roughly about the same afk leeway those skills give)
Every cycle, after you clear the farm, Pauline will sometimes NOT require energizing. This is your cue to go string the pile at the wagon.
After a while, you'll start to recognise the patterns and you'll know when the string pile is ready by looking at the farm patch pattern.
This screenshot (sent by Jay) is helpful for those who are new and have not really memorised the farming pattern.
So I bid you good luck on livid and don't lose hope.
