Why is cancelling refresh so heavy weight?

Whenever I cancel a refresh I mistakenly start in Power BI Desktop it takes forever to truly cancel. The app hangs (ghosts) and even after it becomes responsive, interactivity is impacted. On a large report this can drag for a good minute. Why can't cancel literally kill the ongoing refresh and go back to existing data set?

 

Thanks, Michael

I don't know why it takes so long, but I know a shortcut 😉
