Chapter 88:15
Laws of Muktzeh on Shabbos

15. It is forbidden to handle a corpse on Shabbos. One may slip a pillow out from under it so that it will not become foul-smelling, provided one does not cause a limb to move in the process.

If [the corpse's] mouth is slipping open, one may tie the jaw so that it will not open any further, but not in a way that will close the opening that has already formed; doing so would be considered moving a limb (See also Chapter 194, Law 12.)
