[Christian Janson] "I open a project work with it for 20 - 30 min then all of a suddenly it crashes."

Will it crash if its just sitting there open, or are you doing something specific when it crashes?
What version of FCP?
What changes have you recently made to your system?
When did it start doing this? What had you done prior to this happening?
Prores media, did it start out prores, or was it converted?
What is different about your laptop, from your desktop?
Where is your media located?
The devil is in the details. It is hard to diagnose these things without a very specific description of what you are doing, when it went bad and such since you are sitting in front of your machine and we are not. Sometimes it could be something recently incorporated into a project, or it could be a cascade failure of user errors that have built up over time.

Since you trashed your prefs, you should also try doing repair permissions.
Here's some other general troubleshooting ideas:

A piece of corrupt media
the project file is too big
the project file is corrupt
too many sequences in a project
system drive too full
capture scratch drive too full
capture scratch on usb drive
using the system drive as the capture scratch drive
a plugin that is corrupt
system or FCP update improperly done in the past
recently installed software
hardware failure
hard drive going to sleep, or any type of energy saver mode
screen saver
