if you use only the correct size screwdriver (#1 phillips) to adjust them you should not have a problem, but the wrong size/type will chew up the heads
if the heads on your screws are damaged a speedplay dealer will be able to get you some (they are in the dealer service kit)
you should use only ptfe dry lube on the cleats, if you use lithium grease they'll pick up a lot more crud and you may get problems clipping in/out or excess wear
dry lube is usually ptfe (and some other stuff) in a solvent
you apply it, the solvent evaporates, leaving the waxy lubricant behind
When lubing the cleats is it just the spring part that is exposed, as where the cleats sits on soil or it means to unscrew the cleat and to lube the entire metal spring also underneath where it sits?
Also PTFE dry lube as powder can work the same as oil?
do not use powder

even the small bottle will last a long time
maybe once every 6 months i open up the cleat and wipe out the gunk, that's not because it's especially necessary, it's just sometimes i get so bored that cleaning cleats seems like a good way to pass 10 minutes
For the haters, its simple. To each their own preferences.
Contact points such as saddles, handlebars/tape and pedals are all a matter of preference. There are no specific bad pedals mentioned above. Just DIFFERENT preferences. That is simply because we have different tastes, morphology and micro-range of motion preferences.
What works and is preferred by Cancellara may not be what Contador wants.....and I am not talking about motorised S-works nor ClenbuterolBurgers
I used Times for years including the latest iClic and iclic 2 but the self reentering and limited lateral movement on those is blown away by the Speedplays. I use the full 15 degrees on Speedplay Zero's and never had the skating on ice feeling when seated or even standing on the pedals. I have 25mm extenders on each pedal as I am a big guy. My fitter says people with severe floating on ice don't have the correct stance/axle length. Same with people who feel like they are pedaling at an angle on Speedplays.
They do require a silly amount of careful setup and maintenance compared to pretty much any other pedal but they are bliss for my knees so I gladly put up with it.
If you are having issues lining the pedal and cleat put some tape on your shoe where it meets the middle of the cleat which will help you get used to where to step down.
