And making back ups takes quite a long time, so when I want to close Scrivener / the projects I want them to be closed quickly, I do not want to wait for them to be finished for five minutes or so.

If you use the software in ways that it was not designed for and not optimized for
If making backups takes such a long time, how large are your projects? Are you backing up to a local drive, or to slower media like a USB stick?
The fastest possible backup for a given project size would be to backup *uncompressed* to a local disk, and then use system tools -- after Scrivener closes -- to compress the backup and move it to another location if desired.
