> /etc/sysconfig/grub is a link to /etc/default/grub. You should use resume=uuid=<swapuuid> and insert the blkid uuid for swap instead as /dev/sdX can change between boots and is not reliable. It's strange that your root= in grub.cfg is not using UUID as well.

Thanks very much! So I will add resume=uuid="...." (gigantic
alphanumeric number) to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX? Here is what
/etc/default/grub reads currently:

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="$(sed 's, release .*$,,g' /etc/system-release)"
$([ -x /usr/sbin/rhcrashkernel-param ] && /usr/sbin/rhcrashkernel-param
|| :) nomodeset rhgb quiet" GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"

Should I put this before the nomodeset?

No, there is not. Here is what i have in /boot/grub2:

~$ ll /boot/grub2/
total 25K
drwxrwxr-x. 2 root root 1.0K Dec 18 19:05 fonts/
drwxrwxr-x. 2 root root 9.0K Dec 22 08:51 i386-pc/
drwxrwxr-x. 2 root root 1.0K Dec 22 08:51 locale/
drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 1.0K May  9  2012 themes/
-rw-rw-r--. 1 root root   84 Dec 18 19:05 device.map
-rw-------. 1 root root 3.6K Dec 23 13:01 grub.cfg
-rw-rw-r--. 1 root root 1.0K Dec 19 01:17 grubenv

(Not sure why I have a i386-pc..but this is an x86_64 machine.)

$ fpaste 
bash -x grub2-mkconfig
