If the beer is done, you don't need the pressure relief valve open. If the beer isn't done, 39 degrees is too cold!
You don't want to start lagering until the beer is finished, and the diaceytl rest is done. But after the beer is at FG, and the diacetyl rest is over, you can rack to the keg and lager and go ahead and close the keg.
