Cirros VM is automatically rebooting every time the VM console is opened [closed]

I have installed installed OpneStack IceHouse on Ubuntu 12.04 using devstack. I have created an Instance using "Boot from image" option. The image I have used is cirros-0.3.1-x86_64-uec. These are the specs for the Instance:

Flavor: m1.small
Disk: 20GB

The VM is launched successfully and I can acess its console and log in to it successfully.

The problem is that whenever I leave the console and move to any other Dashboard tab and come back to console, the console becomes unresponsive until I press Ctrl+Alt+Del , in which case the VM reboots and I have to log into it again.

What could possibly be the reason behind this? I want the VM not to reboot everytime I switch between tabs.

If you press Ctrl+Alt+Del the VM will reboot. Instead of console try ssh into vm and check.
