Women and Melachos on Chanukah

Women have the custom not to work while the candles burn. After the minimum time, they may do work, but not in full view of the lights.
Which kind of "works" is a woman exempt of? There are many opinions on the matter. Is there a "Chabad" definition of "work that cannot be done while the candles are burning"?

The Levush and The Bach (and Rav Shlomo Zalmen Auerbach , I think) write that the type of "work" that the women shouldn't do is any "work" that is prohibited on any other Yom Tov. While HaRav Moshe Feinstein and HaRav Chaim Kanievsky maintain that only works that women refrain from doing on Rosh Chodesh and Chol HaMoed are prohibited.
