What causes a sprinkler to leak after shot-off ?

It could be the shutoff valve (debris in stem tip), but most likely cause is that the sprinkler is the lowest point in that line and, after shutoff, the water in the system is draining to the lowest point.

How do I adjust sprinkler head properly

Check to see if the small slotted screw is flush with the top of the spray nozzle. If so, it has been manually lowered. Turn the screw counter clockwise until it stops, be sure to hold the nozzle to keep it from turning. If no, unscrew the nozzle and remove debris from around filter. Tell the gardener to just mow the grass and not to touch the sprinkler system he is usually why it was turned down 9 times out of 10. If he says "No touch, No touch. He is lying fire him.

Same thing, can't figure out how to get it apart.

Viking has a "special" (ha,ha) tool that you put across those 2 notches in the center brass ring. You can find this wrench with pics at:
You probably have thrown out many similar looking 'free' wrenches(because we have better ones in our toolbox) that are packaged with kids toys etc. that should do the job.
A hand held steamer has done a pretty good job for me in cleaning the burned on gunk. I have also used my dremel with various different polishing tips when I have been really frustrated with gunk and discoloration.

Brass Champion Sprinkler Valve

The lowest sprinkler head usually leaks until all the water is out of the system. The valve that controls the sprinkler system has a vaccum breaker valve on it. When there is no pressure from the water main the vaccum valve opens allowing the sprinklers to leak water so the house water won't get contaminated from the grass and dirt in your yard.
