How do you know if you've over proofed?

How do you know if you have over proofed and are there any ways to fix it?

Also, I've read people mention that when they score their bread it doesnt deflate, or does a little but bounces back. How does this happen (as all mine deflate slightly and never bounce back) and how do you prevent it?
