I disconnected on SINGLEPLAYER Hardcore during an encounter and was dead when I logged back in.

Ironically, when you press ESC key on singleplayer the game PAUSES. Than why in the heavens doesn't the game PAUSE during a DISCONENCT or net drop (people on ADSL might lose the signal for 2-3seconds, enough time to DC)!

I can accept hardcore death by monster RNG or my own error but not technical game errors, this really disheartened me with Diablo 3.
