I think that the d-rest will be quicker if you do it while they are still active. If you left it for 3-4 weeks, then I'm guessing they would probably take longer to clean up the diacetyl, since they had probably already settled to the bottom and started going dormant. I would go ahead and take it out of the fridge now.

I took it out of the fridge this morning and it is sitting at 58, and there is still a good amount of movement going on the in the carboy. Would a long primary (3-4 weeks) clean up diacetly without the need for a diacetyl rest?

I'm not sure actually. It is possible that long primaries at lager temps would clean it up, but the problem with that is the wait. You already have to lager the beer for so long, why drag it out even longer? Might as well just let it do the d-rest at room temperature so you can start lagering it.
