Default Diacetyl?

After reading this poor blokes issues:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/i-ma...n-help-131283/

Is Diacetyl something I need to worry about?
I am fermenting in a fridge with a johnson controls set to around 60. Fermenting beer is at 65 degrees.

It'll be a week fermenting on Sunday.
There isn't a point in my house as it's getting cold out that is 75 degrees.

And I had never done anything like this "rest" before.

You haven't heard about it since it generally only applies to lager-style brewing. When you make a lager, you keep it in the 50's, which is too cold for the yeast to clean up diacetyl effectively, so at the end of primary fermentation, you bring the temp up into the 60's for 24-48 hours. With ales fermented in the 60's you have nothing to worry about.
