I'm cold crashing a Belgian at 40. Degrees for 5 days and then going to let it come back up to 70 degrees and bottle as soon ad it does. Wondering if I would have any problems bottling after cold crashing I know it leaves a lot of yeast behind to clarify the beer but does it still have enough let to carbonate correctly

Dont wait for it to get back up to 70, rack and bottle right away...otherwise the warmer it gets the more the sediment moves around. The whole purpose of cold crashing is to settle that cake and make it hard. It carbonates just fine

Will the yeast still be in suspension at 40 degress and not react to the priminng sugar or will it just come up in temp in the bottle and just take a little linger to carbonate

It will warm up and carb up just fine in the bottle.
