Default keep beer cold after cold crashing?

I don't have a ton of ton of room in my kegerator, not enough for two kegs and a fermentor. So I just legged a beer after come crashing it and want to cold crash another. Can I leave the keg that had beer that was cold crashed outside the fridge at around 60 degrees while my other primary crashes? Not sure about the whole warm beer back up thing

If you're just going to do it once I think it'll be fine. But many swings of temperature will make any yeast left in your beer not happy.

Kinda begs the question why someone with a kegerator would care about happy yeast after cold crashing...

Cheers!
