Thanks for the info, but does that include me? It was a single player game and I was the only one playing.
Yes, it includes anyone logged into the game. In a single player game, that means you. Because you did not log out, even though you died, the game continued to run, waiting for you to respawn.
I have used that option in single player to wait out the rest of a horde night when I've died as many times as I cared to die and just wanted it to be morning already.
Also, regarding your comment about surviving five days without eating or drinking ... you didn't. You were dead ... and ghosts don't eat or drink.
