I had a similar issue on an old 12" IBM X24 laptop where /sbin/lspci
reports "ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M6 LY" which according
to www.thinkwiki.org is equivalent to ATI Mobility Radeon 7000 (ie one
of the first "Radeon").

Perhaps this is similar to your model 7500, I have no idea so you
would need to check this.

On Fedora 9 with /etc/X11/xorg.conf specifying the default
Driver "radeon"
this machine would hang on resume from both suspend and hibernate.

In /etc/X11/xorg.conf I changed this to the generic
Driver "vesa"
and both suspend and hibernate now work.

I assume this might not give maximum display performance but it got
this machine useble for me.

Hope this helps
