It is not related to resume option, but to grub remembering your last boot choice. For me problem vent away when I disabled that option. You can still hibernate.

Comment out
Code: [Select]
#GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true
in
Code: [Select]
/etc/default/gruband run
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
This should solve the issue without taking away your ability to hibernate.

I think you need these two lines for 'save default' to work. Haven't used it for some time. If it works for just one line, appreciate the correction.
Code: [Select]
  GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
  GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true

ps: re: resume - maybe I don't understand clearly, but we need 'resume=UUID=xxxxxxxx' in grub.cfg as well for hibernation to work.
But I guess you're saying this is not related to the issue at hand. Then, okay.

Yeah, you should comment out both of those lines to be sure that grub does not try to save the previous choice. Thst way btrfs should not give the sparse files error.

I've been trying to get Btrfs to work with Manjaro for a while. I followed the guide but I too got the sparse error.
Then I added a boot partition in ext4 and that fix the prob but then I got some VFS error and kernel panic.
I have yet to get it to work properly.

As Chrysostomus wrote, setting   GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=false in /etc/default/grub and running update-grub would have resolved it.
