$Version

7.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (February 19, 2009)

These work

ListPlot[Tooltip[Range[4]]]

ListPlot[Tooltip[#, "Data"] & /@ Range[4]]

=============
Nice improvement.  Thanks.

In testing the new function, I discovered a bug in Mathematica 7 (at
least, not 7.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (February 19, 2009) ).
Tooltip[] is not supported in ListPlot:

In[12]:= InputForm[ListPlot[Tooltip[Range[4], "Data"]]]

Out[12]//InputForm=
Graphics[{Hue[0.67, 0.6, 0.6], Point[{{1., 1.}, {2., 2.}, {3., 3.},
{4.,
   4.}}]}, {AspectRatio -> GoldenRatio^(-1), Axes -> True,
  AxesOrigin -> {0, Automatic}, PlotRange -> Automatic,
  PlotRangeClipping -> True}]

Notice that the data points are not wrapped in Tooltip.  Oddly,
ListLogPlot correctly supports Tooltip.
