"Incorrupt" means that the body is intact after the normal period for decomposition. It doesn't mean they look like they're "sleeping." There might be signs of decomposition.

This is also the case with Venerable Maria de Agreda, and so many more.  They simply resist decomposition.  They do not look like they are sleeping.  Many have had had parts of their body removed that are displayed with wax replacements, such as the head of Mother Cabrini or the hands of St. Catherine Laboure.
